Even if a library has been focusing on making its website more accessible, the PDFs that patrons might be able to download are often overlooked. PDF documents are not inherently accessible, and actually require specific effort to make them so.

In this session, learn some concrete actions you can take so that everyone has access to your library’s PDF content.
