Making Your Library’s Accessible Resources More Discoverable

Wednesday, March 23 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

Register for this one-hour webinar.

Captioned videos, large print books, audiobooks: your library has accessible resources, but can your users find them easily? MARC fields dedicated to more effectively conveying accessibility information were implemented in 2018, but not many catalogers are using them or even know that they exist! Join us as we talk through options for recording information about accessible resources in your library and discuss strategies for convincing vendors to display this vital information.
