|Technology highly influences accessibility—many patrons use assistive technology, such as screen readers, literacy software, and speech input, to access and use library materials and e-resources. This free episode of AL Live explores the rapid growth and development of assistive technology and will help you stay informed and equipped with the best practices to assist your users and tips to ensure your materials are accessible to everyone.
|Because planning considerations range from policies and organizational culture to facilities, technologies, and beyond, librarians need to address these issues in a way that is both stable and flexible.
Join us Friday, September 29 at 1 p.m. Eastern as our expert panel discusses the current state of accessibility, the issues many libraries face today, and what we may see in the near future.
Featured panelists for this webinar are:
- Jennifer Moore, associate professor, School of Library and Information Studies, Texas Woman’s University
- Clayton Copeland, faculty and director, Laboratory for Leadership in Equity & Diversity (LLEAD), School of Library and Information Science, University of South Carolina
- Kathy MacMillan, writer, American Sign Language interpreter, consultant, librarian, and signing storyteller
