First impressions matter, whether it’s a library user walking in the front door or discovering a website in a search. If that first impression is positive, with friendly navigation that quickly leads the user to what they’re looking for, it’s more likely they’ll come back again.
This session will step you through a review of your library website, social media, and other web services to make them more accessible to all. You’ll learn what elements to consider and how to evaluate accessibility in many dimensions, including:
– Mission/Vision Statements and Commitments to Inclusion
– Accessible Staff
– Collections & Community Information, and how they’re represented in an online catalog or on a website
– Website accessibility (use of Plain Language; simplified site navigation; adding metadata, captions, and
transcripts for video content; translation options)
– Accessibility on Social Media
– Making live online programs more accessible
After this webinar, you’ll have a checklist of areas to review, suggestions on what to look for/improve, and resources to take the next step.
