Accessibility Ambassadors: Accessibility Committees

This webinar will provide case studies of the formation and impact of accessibility committees in two different areas of the University of Minnesota. Presenters from the Libraries and the Duluth campus will tell the stories of their committees’ formation and advocacy efforts. They will also  discuss the successes, challenges, and horizons facing these kinds of working groups in academic libraries. Participants will gain insight into how the presenters' experiences can be applied in their own departments or campuses and how the two groups have scoped and implemented accessibility projects within their unique organizational cultures.

Accessibility Committees
October 27, 2022 noon-1 p.m.
