MLS Workshops

Vendors often claim that their products are accessibility-compliant and easy to use, but is that really true? In this session, we'll examine some ways in which you can evaluate your electronic resources for accessibility and usability. Using the context of eBooks, we’ll discuss rubrics, VPATs, and the do’s and don’ts of accessibility testing. Libraries with dedicated accessibility software may find this session the most useful but with accessibility features built into smartphones and devices, library staff members from all library types are encouraged to attend.

Learning Outcomes:
Introductory knowledge of accessibility in libraries
Methods for evaluating accessibility of electronic resources in libraries
Lessons learned from a case study of live-testing eBooks for accessibility
