These resources are designed to help students meet the OhioLINK Recommended Minimum Requirements for digital document accessibility, established for ETDs published after January 31, 2023. (Please note that these recommendations may change over time.) University of Dayton students are required to make their ETD documents accessible at least according to the OhioLINK minimum recommendations. Students are also required to submit a separate Accessibility Report document to demonstrate that applicable accessibility standards have been met. The Accessibility Report will be reviewed by Graduate Academic Affairs staff. Both the final ETD and the Accessibility Report must be uploaded to the OhioLINK ETD database prior to graduation.
For further assistance students may reach out to the Office of Learning Resources (OLR), or to one of their designated Unit Digital Accessibility Coordinators (consult with your departmental or dean’s office) for support.
