LYRASIS Trending Topics - The LYRASIS 2019 Accessibility Report
Live Online $0.00 / $25.00


This session will be dedicated to reviewing the methodology and the results of the LYRASIS 2019 Accessibility Report. Accessibility, as defined in the report, means accommodating users with various forms of disability, such as physical, visual or hearing impairment within GLAM institutions, the majority of respondents being academic libraries. The study focused on how libraries are handling accessibility for their online materials, specifically in three areas: acquired (licensed or open access) materials, created content (digitized special collections/archival collections, library publishing), and the systems used to host these items.

At the end of this sessions participants should understand the current major trends surrounding online accessibility for (largely academic) libraries and archives within the United States.
