Universal Design for Learning: Accessibility at the Library
More and more libraries and educational institutions provide online content whether databases, archival collections, videos, and documents. But how much of this information is accessible by those who are blind, have low vision, or are hard of hearing? Libraries and other institutions are legally required to provide accessible content. This series of 4 separate webinars will provide some basic steps librarians can take to make their content accessible to all. Attend one or all of the sessions to increase your library's online digital access.
- July 11th: UDL to Promote Framework Principles Adoption, Student Engagement and Active Learning
- July 18th: Promoting Accessible Document Creation
- July 25th: Building Accessible Websites
- August 1st: Accessibility in Procurement
