LYRASIS 2019 Accessibility Survey Report: Understanding the Landscape of Library Accessibility for Online Materials

Accommodating users with disabilities is not a new endeavor for libraries. However, the evolving landscape of content digitization and the shifting nature of the scholarly communication eco-system presents new challenges for libraries attempting to adhere to institutional policies and meet legal requirements regarding online accessibility for those users. The LYRASIS accessibility survey was conducted in early 2019 as a mechanism to better understand how (primarily academic) libraries within the United States are handling accessibility for their online content, and more specifically, where they stand in terms of policy and implementation.
