Keynote: Disability Accessibility in the World of Library Service
-Jason Altmann, Director of the ADS department at Harper College and Christine Kuffel, Head of User Services at Harper College Library

With the increasing number of resources and services that are readily available online to college students, there is a great need for the Library Services to ensure that their programs and services are readily accessible for students with disabilities, who account 19% of the college student population. The participants will gain a basic understanding of the accessibility barriers students with disabilities routinely encounter when using services from the Library Service. The participants will learn how to assess the accessibility of their Library Service Department by utilizing the accessibility checklist. The participants will be able to identify resources that can be used to implement accessibility solutions.
