Licensing, marketing, access to digital scholarship, end users, innovation – these are terms which are inextricably linked to the world of the 21st century research libraries. Understanding diverse user experiences and developing new ideas and transparent approaches in serving these users brings new dimensions to the world of libraries. The following session is comprised of multiple speakers who are able to offer attendees a unique kaleidoscope glimpse into the diverse world of library users with print disabilities, incorporating technology demonstrations, a review of national and international legislative guidelines, and user input. This session will also offer the opportunity for the audience to raise valuable questions in a free-form forum style format, engaging with speakers and library patrons to tackle valuable topics of digital and print format accessibility and opportunities for libraries and publishers to grow in this area.
