Mar 7, 2022

3:30pm – 4:30pm CT

Schools have a legal and moral obligation to support the information needs of those in their community—whether student or faculty—to provide access to content regardless of individual ability or need for accommodation.

This presentation brings together stakeholders who play a role in bringing fully accessible materials from the publisher to student.
