The mission of every public library centers around providing access to information and services to everyone who visits its branches; but increasingly patrons are interacting with libraries through apps, social media, and websites.

Is your library’s digital front door as easy to enter as your physical one? Are there virtual obstacles that make your library less inviting to visitors with limited abilities?

Originally presented June 2, 2020.

Running time: 59 minutes

At the conclusion of this on-demand webinar, participants will be able to:

  • Empathize with the most common website-related challenges for individuals with various disabilities;
