Collection Development, E-Resources, and Meeting The Needs of People with Disabilities (ACRL Presentation)

Axel Schmetzke, Cheryl Pruitt, and Michele Bruno are presenting on collection development, e-resources, and meeting the needs of people with disabilities at ACRL ’15 in Portland.

Axel and his co-presenters were kind enough to allow posting of their presentation slides to the Libraries for Universal Accessibility (LUA) website. If you are not familiar with LUA, it is a community place dedicated to the discussion of library accessibility. LUA is composed of librarians, library staff, vendors, information professionals, library and accessibility advocates and other interested people. You are invited to explore the rest of the LUA site — — and become a contributor by joining our community –

          Resources (including accessibility)

          Electronic discussion list/LISTSERV (ACESSLISTS)
