Evidence of Our Values: Disability Inclusion on Library Instruction Websites Academic Article uri icon

abstract

  • © 2018 by Johns Hopkins University Press, Baltimore, MD 21218. Libraries are called to serve users with diverse needs and a wide range of abilities and disabilities. The library literature includes much about services to persons with disabilities but says little about programmatic efforts in library instruction and accessibility design at an organizational level. This study looks for visible evidence of inclusive practices in library instruction programs through a content analysis of library instruction websites and instruction request forms, examining instruction-related pages for accessibility language. Results show little evidence of programmatic disability inclusion on library websites.
