The goal of this resource is to support scholarly communication librarians wanting to implement accessibility measures in their open access, open education, and open data initiatives.
To be clear, this resource isn’t a how-to manual for achieving accessibility. I would join others in arguing that accessibility isn’t a thing that can be “achieved” or “checked off a list.” Rather, it is a process of constant reevaluation, of better understanding the needs of the people libraries are meant to serve. With that said, this resource seeks to inspire further conversation in scholarly communication about how we can adapt our practices to ensure the free and equitable sharing of information.
