Libraries: Spaces For Everyone - Web Accessibility Basics and Beyond [Pre-Conference; Registration Required]

Log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

*This pre-conference must have a minimum of 15 registrants by September 15 in order to prevent cancellation. If this pre-conference is cancelled, you will be notified by October 1.* This will be an interactive workshop that allows attendees to learn about digital accessibility guidelines, laws, and practices and gain hands-on experience putting these into practice with their own platforms. We will also work to build empathy and better understanding of how our work can impact our users with accessibility needs and concerns. We will walk through the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG 2.1), review how to use various tools and methods to audit a website, and provide time to work with colleagues or other workshop attendees on your websites and online tools. In addition, we will look at how accessibility can affect subscribed electronic resources, focusing on steps you can take to be aware of accessibility before you purchase a resource and methods you can employ to work with vendors after a resource is purchased.

I am the resident extroverted librarian who will nerd out about outreach, maker culture, history, and anything pop culture with you!

I enjoy talking about all things geek, and exploring new food and beer places. Oh, I also enjoy talking UX for e-resource access and best ways to wrangle metadata into something useful.
