LYRASIS Releases Accessibility Survey Report

LYRASIS published “LYRASIS 2019 Accessibility Survey Report: Understanding the Landscape of Library Accessibility for Online Materials.” It aims “to better understand how (primarily academic) libraries within the United States are handling accessibility for their online content, and more specifically, where they stand in terms of policy and implementation.” Findings include the following:
  • Libraries are the most progressive in terms of accessibility when they maintain the most control over their content.
  • National policies and community technical guidelines on accessibility hold more prominence than local or institutional mandates.
  • Most accessibility training is self-initiated; more infrastructure is needed to train librarians in accessibility mandates and tools.
