ALA Releases Report on Accessibility in Library Spaces

ALA collaborated with Knology, a nonprofit research organization, to publish “Accessibility in Libraries: A Landscape Review,” which examines the literature and best practices around libraries and accessibility. It is part of ALA’s Libraries Transforming Communities initiative.

The report looks at the following:

  • the different ways disability has been understood and defined over time (the ‘medical model’ vs. the ‘social model’)
  • the history of accessibility in U.S. libraries, dating back to the 19th century
  • the current landscape of accessibility and its different applications in library settings today
  • the resources that are available and most commonly used to include people with different kinds of disabilities into library programs and services

For more information, read the press release.
