Share the Vision 2 2000‑01
This project was funded by Resource, the Council for Museums, Archives and Libraries to complement the earlier survey of public library provision for visually impaired people. A national survey was carried out, examining visually impaired people's perceptions, opinions and activities regarding the relevant information and library services that are available. The results, based on an extensive series of interviews with visually impaired people, identify information and service needs and preferences as well as factors that hinder equality of access to information. A full report entitled Out of sight but not out of mind was published both electronically and in large print in November 2001.
