FLW: Introduction to Web Accessibility

March 20 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Are you concerned that your library’s website isn’t meeting accessibility standards? If not, you should be–lawsuits concerning website accessibility failures are increasing, and libraries are not immune. Gain an understanding of which guidelines are used to measure website accessibility in the United States, and how to begin to evaluate your own library’s site for potential issues. We’ll also discuss some common pitfalls and things to avoid.
