Homeless in libraries – An ALA Resource

As a public law library in a large metropolitan area, we regularly encounter issues with serving homeless library patrons. I just ran across an ALA resource, Services to Poor and Homeless People, that gives a good foothold for those who are just beginning to grapple with this difficult issue. The Maricopa County Library Council is working on a wiki to share resource information for homeless patrons. If other law libraries are working to address this issue, RIPS would love to hear about it.
