*Pre-Conference is CONFIRMED* 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.
