Online Workshop: Accessibility Options for E-Resources

ADA Awareness in Libraries

This event is open to all

Apr 29

4:00 PM - 5:00 PM

Russell Hall 101

More Details:

This workshop offers tips and tricks for accessing e-resources provided by Proquest E-book Central; EbscoHost and JStor, and Mendeley, a citation management software. While these databases differ in scope, function, and content, they share common concerns in addressing requirements that serve to meet the Americans with Disabilities Act, a civil rights law that prohibits discrimination based on disability. Accessible features may include text-to-speech; transcripts; alternate text; Aria landmarks; access keys; EPUB and DRM-free books; magnification; adjusting settings; colors and contrasts; screenreaders; and keyboard navigation.

Please rsvp by Wednesday, April 28th, and we'll follow up with a link to the session.
