What are publishers, vendors, and libraries doing to make publications accessible—to readers with print disabilities and to readers facing other barriers to access? This panel will address this question from various perspectives to give audience members a sense of the accessibility and publishing landscape today, and a look at promising practices that may change that landscape in the near future.


Panelists from university presses, vendors, and libraries will outline current practices in their respective fields and outline the ways in which those fields are changing. We will focus on the practical matters of making books accessible to readers with print disabilities and on the transformational possibilities of incorporating accessible practices into every aspect of the scholarly communication lifecycle.


Audience members will interact with leaders in the field during Q&A and will learn about resources to explore further, including the 2018 Charleston Briefings book, Accessibility & Publishing.
