Access to libraries for persons with disabilities - A CHECKLIST

In order to provide equal opportunities for all library users, it is necessary to look with the eyes of all patron groups at the physical condition of library buildings, as well as library services and programs. This checklist, developed by the IFLA Standing Committee of Libraries Serving Disadvantaged Persons (LSDP) in the Hague, is designed as a practical tool for all types of libraries (public, academic, school, special) to assess existing levels of accessibility to buildings, services, materials and programs and to enhance accessibility where needed.

New information and communications technologies can improve the quality of life for people with disabilities, but only if such technologies are designed from the beginning so that everyone can use them. Given the explosive growth in the use of the World Wide Web for publishing, electronic commerce, lifelong learning and the delivery of government services, it is vital that the Web be accessible to everyone.
