Legislative and Policy-Making Work Group Plan of Action
Textbooks and Instructional Materials Solutions Forum
Statement of Purpose:
The Legislative and Policy Making Work Group is primarily concerned with the analysis and development of public policies impacting upon the Solutions Forum's goal of ensuring equal access to the printed word, and more specifically, to the full range of educational materials. This work group is the Forum's point of contact for on-going efforts among representatives of the publishing industry, blindness advocacy organizations and the National Library Service to assess the feasibility of establishing a national repository for standardized electronic files. Additionally, this work group will serve as a mechanism to package and present the Solutions Forum's outcomes for future advocacy efforts.
