Linda Lucas Walling Collection For and About Children with Disabilities

The Walling Collection was established when Professor Walling retired from the School of Library and Information Science. The collection is designed to provide self-instruction on selecting and evaluating  materials for children with disabilities and materials about children with disabilities.

The collection includes sub-collections of professional resources, books for children with disabilities, books about children with disabilities, and winners of two recently established awards, the Dolly Gray Award and the Schneider Family Award. These awards are given for books about children with disabilities.

The South Carolina State Library for the Blind and Physically Handicapped will provide a small demonstration collection of materials in special formats, and the collection will eventually include some examples of adaptive toys and similar things.
