VALE/ACRL-NJ/NJLA-CUS Users’ Conference: Inclusive Libraries: Connecting Users in the Digital Age


Librarians at Caldwell University and Montclair State University have recently undertaken projects to improve the accessibility of their Libguides. In this session, we will provide: a brief overview of the principles of web accessibility; a list of recommendations on how Libguide editors can improve the accessibility of their Libguides (including textual content, multimedia and attachments); as well as strategies and advice on accessibility training for editors. While this session is geared towards those who are new to this area, we will also provide concrete strategies to pursue accessibility initiatives at your own institution.
