Magnifying Devices: A Resource Guide is the newest reference circular from the National Library Service for the Blind and Physically Handicapped. Devices listed are designed to assist people who have visual impairments by magnifying objects and print or graphic materials. The first two sections list available products (including magnifiers, magnifying lamps, screen magnifiers, and closed circuit television and enhanced vision systems) and the third section gives the addresses and telephone numbers of the producers and vendors. Subsequent sections provide a selective list of books and journal articles related to low vision, describe evaluations of specific devices, and list selective Internet resources.
