Registration has closed.

Join us for Conducting an Accessibility Inventory presented by Danielle Lavoie, and Maura Ferrarini, Digital Solutions, Harvard Library.


Digital Strategies & Innovations (DSI) convened a Harvard Library Digital Accessibility Team for this project, which took place from July-November 2019. Our team included library developers, analysts, technologists, designers, UX experts, special collections staff, and other colleagues from around the Library. 

In this work we reviewed 14 library systems for compliance with the WCAG 2.1 AA accessibility standard and documented and prioritized over 500 accessibility issues. We have shared findings with product owners, developers, vendors, and other stakeholders.

Learn about our work process and what our team has achieved since our inventory concluded in November.

The presentation will be held from 12:00-1:00 PM via Zoom. Zoom meeting information will be sent to registered attendees.

Open to all Harvard affiliates. If you have any questions, please contact libraryux@harvard.edu.
