Description: 

Equity of access to information is an imperative factor for all library patrons - especially those who are differently-able or have disabilities. Few recent studies have investigated how accessibility, physical, virtual or digital, might be improved. This dynamic, interactive session highlights findings from one of the first comparative analyses of information access and the perspectives of differently-able and typically-able patrons. Learn about the lived experience of accessibility and how libraries can strengthen access and equality.

Hi everyone--

Thank you for your interest in this program! Due to unforseen circumstances with program speakers, this program is unfortunately cancelled. Please consider attending one of our other programs--more information can be found here: http://www.ala.org/ascla/asclaevents/annual

Best,

Liz

I would love to read the study this program drew on- I am doing a PhD in early literacy, specifically looking at children with significant disabilities so this would be helpful to me- tesspre@alumni.ubc.ca
