Join us for a free webinar to learn from recent successes and challenges in practicing inclusivity to improve access to digital resources in libraries.

Looking through the lens of the Marrakesh Treaty to Facilitate Access to Published Works for Persons Who Are Blind, Visually Impaired, or Otherwise Print Disabled and exploring selected case studies, this session is designed to spur an active dialogue about the future of the digital book and the roles of research libraries and publishers in facilitating improved access to information—the cornerstone principle upon which libraries are built.

Speakers will include:

  • Nancy King, Director of Product Management, EBSCO
  • Victoria Owen, Chief Librarian, University of Toronto Scarborough; Governing Board Member, International Federation of Library Associations and Institutions (IFLA); Past Chair, IFLA Copyright and Other Legal Matters Committee
  • Kathryn Cornell Webster, Analytical and Innovative Mathematics, Business, and Computer Science Student, Wake Forest University
  • Margaret Williams, Director of Content and Access, Centre for Equitable Library Access / Centre d’accès équitable aux bibliothèques
