Making Content Accessible: How Can Publishers and Libraries Better Satisfy the Obligation?

Institutions of higher education (IHEs) have a legal and moral obligation to support the information needs of those in their community. They are required to provide access to information resources that are as close as possible to those resources provided to individuals who do not experience those impairments. But what goes into making an ebook, a textbook, or other course materials fully accessible? This virtual NISO event will bring together stakeholders to discuss current efforts made to ensure that all content is accessible and the challenges still to be overcome.

Speakers include:

  • Violaine Iglesias, CEO & Co-founder, Cadmore Media
  • Jamie Axelrod, Director, Disability Resources, Northern Arizona University
  • Kara Kroes Li, Director of Product Management, EBSCO
  • Rachel Comerford, Senior Director of Content Standards and Accessibility, Macmillan Learning
  • George Kerscher, Chief Innovations Officer, DAISY Consortium
  • Michael Johnson, Director, Content Partnerships, Benetech
