Accessibility bolsters the research experience, increasing use and access for everyone. Michelle Strizever and Christopher Corrigan will explore methods to make art library collections, websites, and spaces accessible to patrons with disabilities. In addition, they will teach you how to provide better access to all art library patrons and to comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act.
 
As libraries become increasingly diverse because of their growing international user populations, enhancing services and programs is more essential than ever. Andrea Malone will share her experiences and present strategies for ensuring international users have successful interactions when using the library.

Transgender leader and advocate Lou Weaver will discuss how libraries can better address the needs of transgender and gender non-conforming patrons. Learn how librarians can develop library facilities, services, and collections that are more inclusive and comfortable for patron groups whose unique needs may not be apparent.
