assistive technologyAt the upcoming Library Technicians and Assistants Interest Group (LTAIG) conference, Meaghan Malone will present Enabling Access: Assistive Technologies at the QEII Library.

As the number of Memorial University students who self-identify as having a disability grows, so, too, does the demand for improved library accessibility. But rather than equate “assistive technology” (AT) exclusively with “users with disabilities,” why not consider the ways that all users can benefit from AT? This session will look at the assistive technology services currently being offered in the QEII Library, as well as plans to further improve patrons’ access to resources.
