Despite the Americans with Disabilities Act and relevant state building codes, many library buildings fail to deal with a range of everyday disabilities among users and staff. 

Some libraries were constructed before the ADA was first passed in 1990 and have not been required to conform with the act. A few more recent libraries have simply ignored aspects of the ADA. 

In addition, many everyday disabilities are not covered by legislation or building codes and are often ignored in building planning.

This program will review accessibility options and some possible solutions. Although by far the best time to deal with accessibility issues is before design and construction begin, many things can be done later.

Presenter Fred Schlipf will review issues and problems in library building accessibility, with a variety of possible solutions. Attendees are also welcome to describe accessibility problems at their libraries and what they have done to deal with them, or simply to raise accessibility issues for discussion with the group attending. Registrants are invited to send accessibility questions or issues with photos in advance to . Please send your questions for Fred Schlipf by July 7.

Fred Schlipf is coauthor of The Practical Handbook of Library Architecture: Creating Building Spaces that Work. He has consulted on about 200 library construction projects and has visited library buildings at every opportunity. He has been an adjunct professor at the School of Information Sciences at the University of Illinois since 1970, where he specializes in practical issues in library architecture, and he was director of The Urbana Free Library from 1974 through 2007. He has a PhD from the Graduate Library School of the University of Chicago.

Supporting Academic Success: Open Educational Resources and Affordable Course Materials

HELP LOWER TEXTBOOK COSTS FOR STUDENTS

Are you an instructor who is concerned about the impact of high textbook costs on your students? Explore possible open textbook solutions by attending a two-hour workshop and writing a short textbook review.

DID YOU KNOW...

  • The high cost of some course materials can impede students’ academic success.
  • In the 2020 College Board Report, "Trends in College Pricing and Student Aid," the average undergraduate should budget $1,240 - $1,460 for textbooks and supplies.
  • The cost of textbooks is rising at a rate of 4 times inflation.
  • Seven out of 10 students don’t purchase a required textbook during their academic career because of cost.
  • 60% of students have delayed purchasing textbooks until they’ve received their financial aid.

OPEN EDUCATIONAL RESOURCES INCLUDING OPEN TEXTBOOKS AND AFFORDABLE COURSE MATERIALS

Open educational resources including open textbooks can help alleviate the burden of textbook costs for students and provide faculty with content that can be customized for their course. Open textbooks are full, real textbooks, used by many faculty across the country, and licensed to be freely used, edited, and distributed. This workshop will also mention local library resources that might be used for affordable course materials.

WHAT YOU CAN DO

Attend CARLI's OER Faculty Workshop where you can learn about open educational resources and open textbooks.
The prime content of this workshop will be presented 10:00-11:30 a.m. Time for additional consultation will be available 11:30 a.m.-12:00 p.m.
After the workshop, CARLI members will be invited to write a short review of an open textbook from the Open Textbook Library. Your review will benefit other faculty considering open textbooks.

Annette Alvarado, Research & Learning Librarian at Loyola University Chicago Libraries;
Elizabeth Clarage, CARLI Director of Collections Services;
