ACRL 2017 Accessibility on the Horizon

Hello from Baltimore, Maryland! This week, Rachel Thompson is joining UA Libraries’ Melissa Green for the Association of College and Research Libraries’ annual conference. Along with Vanderbilt University’s Melissa Mallon, they will present the panel, “Accessibility on the Library Horizon: The NMC Horizon Report > 2017 Library Edition”. This session examines, through the lens of accessibility, the important developments in technology presented in the latest NMC Horizon Report > Library Edition and offers a discussion of technologies on the five-year horizon for academic and research libraries, how they are expected to transform teaching and learning, and their potential to enhance and diminish accessibility and learning for students with disabilities.
