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".

"Advancing employment opportunities and expectations for people with disabilities strengthens not only America's economy, but our moral fiber. It creates a more inclusive America, one where every person is recognized for his or her accomplishments — and that should be our goal not just on Labor Day but every day."

Assistant Secretary Kathy Martinez, Office of Disability Employment Policy, September 7, 2009
