Description: 

As library's purchase an ever increasing amount of electronic content, questions about universal accessibility become ever more important. Since the advent of ebooks and other electronic content, people with print disabilities have fought for equal access to these library materials. Gradually, equal access has become more prevalent, often only after long legal battles. In this session, attendees will learn timely options for making their collections accessible to patrons with print disabilities and will walk away with concrete steps and strategies that libraries can implement to ensure their ongoing accessibility.
