    Subject: [Athen] Library training module on accessibility
    Dear Higher Education Community,
    Sorry for cross posting.
    For those of you with contacts in your library, I suggest you forward this
    to them. It is an accessibility training module designed for librarians
    funded by the Institute for Museum and Library Services (IMLS). The
    librarians will know IMLS very well!
    In addition, I suggest you look at this for its applicability for training
    of DSO staff. It covers a lot of the basics about print disabilities and how
    persons with disabilities access digital information. It goes into detail
    about Assistive Technology on all platforms for all disability groups.
    If anybody has comments or suggestions, they are most welcome. It will
    undergo a revision in the next few months; we have already received
    comments, and if you get them in soon, the improvements may be integrated.
    ***
    We are looking for people to pilot the Reading for Accessibility training
    module for library staff that we created with funding from the IMLS.
    If you could forward to your staff and/or any other communication channels
    you utilize that target library staff that would be helpful. The audience is
    any library staff person who interacts with patrons.
    The module can be found on the Reading for Accessibility Page
    https://libguides.ctstatelibrary.org/dld/ReadingForAccessibility, and we ask that people who review it fill out a brief
    feedback survey.
    If there ay questions, you can direct them to me.
    Best
