Accessibility can be intimidating, but no fear! You don’t have to be an expert to start learning on your own, or spreading awareness in your library. Come learn and discuss digital accessibility best practices for all types of libraries, see how easy it can be to get started, and learn how digital accessibility affects the ways users interact with libraries online. Then see a model of Accessibility Pop-up Workshops for internal training including lesson plans, handouts, and resources on a range of topics including how to create accessible documents. Leave with these tools and adapt them for workshops in your own library, or simply use them as an individual training guide. This informative presentation will intermix formal learning opportunities with small group discussions to share your knowledge and discuss accessibility in your library, all while gaining confidence to start implementing and sharing knowledge of accessibility best practices no matter your position in the library.
