The Keystone Institute Resource Library

The Keystone Institute has an extensive resource library consisting of many books, video, and periodicals on many topics related to disability, community and Social Role Valorization.  In addition to the topics and resources listed below, we are constantly acquiring new and interesting materials.  Just a sample is listed below. Some are hard to find, and we have many historically important authors and books, as well as popular films related to disability for review and study.  The best way to take advantage of the resource library is to visit us at 940 East Park Drive in Harrisburg, PA., come to the KI Suite on the second floor, have some coffee, and browse through the shelves.  Institute faculty can make recommendations if you have a specific area you are researching, and can make book loans through the mail.  Please contact us to make use of the library. We would love to help you connect with the resources you need.
