Description:Having materials in a library’s collection is good; having those materials in the formats needed by the library’s community is much better. The act of supplying content in the formats that community members require is critically important to meeting their information needs.
This informative webinar will delve into ways of discerning the format needs of a community, including using the census and other data, along with existing reports, to discern the best way of provisioning material for the community.
After this webinar, participants will be able to:
- Explain the various ways content can be made accessible to members of a library’s community
- Examine U.S. Census data and draw preliminary conclusions based on that data
- Select data from other sources which will support an understanding of the community’s accessibility needs
