Library Services for People with Disabilities

This portion of the Association of Specialized and Cooperative Library Agencies website discusses the Library Services for People with Disabilities Policy. "The American Library Association recognizes that people with disabilities are a large and neglected minority in the community and are underrepresented in the library profession. This webpage discusses the use of strategies based upon the principles of universal design to ensure that library policy, resources and services meet the needs of all people".

New information and communications technologies can improve the quality of life for people with disabilities, but only if such technologies are designed from the beginning so that everyone can use them. Given the explosive growth in the use of the World Wide Web for publishing, electronic commerce, lifelong learning and the delivery of government services, it is vital that the Web be accessible to everyone.
