Accessibility for Libraries

Library resources should be provided for the interest, information, and enlightenment of all people in the community. Access to books and digital resources should not be hindered by disabilities or language barriers.

Users Face Digital Barriers on Library Websites

Most of us take access to libraries for granted, but it’s not that simple for those who struggle with traditional methods of communication or face online barriers.

A survey found that 71% of individuals have abandoned websites that they found difficult to use. This issue is equally crucial for library websites, as users may miss out on valuable information or resources if they struggle to use a website. Ensuring that library websites are user-friendly and inclusive is essential in facilitating access to vital information and resources, especially for those who may be more vulnerable or require additional support.

Why you Should Provide Online Support in the Library Sector

Attract Patrons
An inclusive and accessible website can encourage individuals to explore the library's resources, access online materials, and visit the library in person.
Employer of Choice
Being inclusive sets you apart as an employer of choice. Higher staff satisfaction scores and reduced turnover rates will increase the pool of candidates who want to interview, work, and stay with you.
Enhanced User Experience
Assistive technology allows users to overcome barriers, allowing them to digest online content in a way that works for them.

Let us show you how easy it can be.
