Universal Design at Your Library (WebJunction)
Friday, March 31, 2023
As we work to ensure that our library spaces, services, and programs are welcoming to all members of the community, it is important to know how to design for inclusion. The principles of Universal Design offer guidance
on how to design in ways that prioritize usability and accessibility for all. This presentation will introduce the concept of Universal Design, explain how it contrasts with accessibility, and offer concrete advice for how to
apply each of the principles of Universal Design at any library. The examples and ideas provided will focus on high-impact changes that can be done within a range of budgets from low (or even no) cost ideas to advice for planning for large-scale renovation projects.
