Are you concerned that your library’s website isn’t meeting accessibility standards? If not, you should be–lawsuits concerning website accessibility failures are increasing, and libraries do not have immunity. Additionally, libraries should want to insure that everyone can use their websites in order to best serve their respective communities.
In this one-hour webinar, you’ll gain an understanding of which guidelines are used to measure website accessibility in the U.S. and how to begin to evaluate your own library’s site for potential issues. We’ll also discuss some common pitfalls and things to avoid.
