SPEC Survey Webcast on Accessibility and Universal Design
Wednesday, June 13, 2018 @ 1:00 pm – 1:45 pm
The Association of Research Libraries (ARL) is offering a series of webcasts that present the findings from the latest SPEC surveys and allow webcast participants to discuss trends with the survey authors. A 45-minute webcast will follow the publication of each SPEC Kit in 2018.
The next webcast in this series will cover the Accessibility and University Design survey (SPEC Kit 358). This survey seeks to better understand how ARL member libraries are meeting the accessibility needs of users and staff. It includes questions regarding support for assistive technologies in libraries, services provided to people with disabilities, staffing and training for these services, evaluation of resources, and institutional policies and procedures in this area. It also includes questions on Universal Design, an approach to design that makes spaces and services more inclusive of all, regardless of their needs.
