Having materials in a library's collection is
good; having those materials in the formats needed by the library's community
is much better. The act of supplying content in the formats that community
members require is critically important to meeting their information needs.

This informative webinar will delve into ways
of discerning the format needs of a community, including using the census and
other data, along with existing reports, to discern the best way of
provisioning material for the community.

After this webinar, participants will be able

  • Explain the various ways content can be made accessible
    to members of a library's community

  • Examine U.S. Census data and draw preliminary
    conclusions based on that data

  • Select data from other sources which will support an
    understanding of the community's accessibility needs
