Reminder UKSG webinar 18 October - "Accessibility aspirations..." Maria Campbell 10 Oct 2018 11:20 UTC

Dear colleagues,

*With apologies for cross-posting*

We are still accepting registrations for next week's free UKSG webinar: "Accessibility aspirations - the outcomes of the Aspire audit of e-book accessibility statements and their implications for libraries"

Thursday 18 October 2018 at 1400 BST (British Summer Time)

For more information and to register (for the live event or recording), please visit

- Alistair McNaught, Subject specialist - Accessibility, Jisc

Learning outcomes:
- identify what makes a good accessibility statement and why it matters to your print-impaired students
- understand the issues involved in finding the relevant information
- recognise the detrimental impact on your service where suppliers provide poor information
- obtain objective, factual data to strengthen your case in arguing for improved information from suppliers
- understand how to provide your own learners with better guidance to support their accessibility independence

We welcome your questions during registration to help shape the webinar's content. For instance, "At what point in the process can accessibility be added if not at creation?"

UKSG webinars are:
- Recorded and the link to the recording provided to all active registrations (so please do not cancel your registration if you find you are subsequently unable to attend the live event). Feel free to register for the recording alone.
- Open to all (you do not need to be a member of UKSG to register)
- Shared among colleagues (feel free to pass on this message)

These are available at
(Especially useful for those new to webinars or joining from an institution.) We recommend you check your connection and consult your IT department to make sure access will not be impeded.

If you have particular accessibility needs, please feel free to contact me on

We look forward to welcoming you next week or hearing from you via #UKSGwebinar.

With regards


Maria Campbell
