Welcome to the University Libraries Accessibility Resources guide. This guide is intended as a companion to the Accessibility in Roesch Library presentation.
Use the following links and resources for background information on accessibility in general, then peruse the tabs on the left to find definitions and literature focused on specific barriers to accessibility. This is a living document, so if you have a question or suggestion, please contact us.
"Accessibility, simply defined, means that the fullest use of any resource should be given to the greatest number of people. Libraries, as providers of public space and digital content, have a responsibility to promote equitable access to all users, whether or not they use assistive technology."
