Reading Reimagined: Library Access For All Including Canadians With Print Disabilities
    Thursday May 24, 2012 10:30am - 12:00pm @ Patterson Hall, Room 324

    Participants will learn about CNIB’s initiative to establish a national library service for Canadians with print disabilities, “the hub”.  You will have the opportunity to ask questions and provide input to the next steps.

     

    An estimated 10% of Canadians have a print disability, but less than 5% of published works are available in alternate formats.

     

    To address these barriers to full participation, CNIB has assumed a leadership role in defining what a national accessible library service should look like, it’s funding and governance. Through consultations with community stakeholders, funders and content providers, CNIB has developed a plan for a national accessible library service and is now working with partnering organizations to implement this service for persons with print disabilities.
