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".

Those who are qualified for and want to work should not be denied that right because of an inaccessible building or an outdated set of assumptions about what they can or cannot do..."
