Universal Design for Learning: Accessibility at the Library: More and more libraries and educational institutions provide online content whether databases, archival collections, videos, and documents. But how much of this information is accessible by those who are blind, have low vision, or are hard of hearing? Libraries and other institutions are legally required to provide accessible content. This NNLM PNR webinar series will provide some basic steps librarians can take to make their content accessible to all. Attend one or all of the sessions to increase your library's online digital access. All libraries will also find this helpful. Dates are July 11, 18, 25, and August 1 from 10:00 - 11:00am PT. (Each session is eligible for 1 Medical Library Association CE)  Learn more about each session and register<https://nnlm.gov/classes/universal-design-learning-accessibility-library>
