Applying Universal Design and WCAG 2.1 Guidelines to Web Accessibility

"The Internet has become a commodity that we can’t live without. In 2016, access to the web was declared a human right by the United Nations. Equal access to information is a core value of librarianship, according to the American Library Association. One way that librarians promote equal access to information is by moving resources online. While moving the information online is a good first step, there are still barriers to access to consider."

What’s New for Project ENABLE and YOU in 2020?

Lots of changes and additions to Project ENABLE, as we begin a new year and a new decade. First, we changed the name of our blog to “The Inclusive Librarian,” a name that better fits our mission to help librarians transform their libraries, striving to offer more accessible facilities, resources and technologies and more inclusive programs and services to all patrons. We’ve also given the Project ENABLE site a whole new look! You’ll be seeing changes and additions to our home page and to our content during the year. Finally, the Syracuse University Project ENABLE team is excited to announce that, in the latter part of 2019, we received our fifth IMLS Laura Bush 21st Century Librarian grant for Project ENABLE, entitled “Library Services to Patrons with Disabilities: A Problem-Based Learning Approach.”
