Writing for Accessibility Online - Florida Library Webinars
Wednesday, September 6, 2017, 12:00 PM - 1:30 PM, Library West Room 419

 

Following the 60-minute webinar will be a live 30-minute Q&A with Stacy Ewing, Accessibility Advisory Committee Chair for the UF Libraries.

 

Making your website accessible to users with disabilities is important. It’s not just a legal mandate, it’s also the right thing to do. But more people than you’d expect will benefit from an accessible website – even those of us who don’t rely on assistive technologies.

 

Assistive Technology and the human brain both benefit from cleanly structured and designed content. This workshop will cover basic principles of writing for the web and how they overlap with accessibility standards. You’ll also learn how to start promoting these values at your work, and some tools to check your content against standards.

 

Registration: UF Libraries employees register through the Instruction and Training Database.

The Smathers Libraries Staff Competencies Training Matrix is an online tool that matches the Libraries’ staff competencies with learning opportunities (formal, on-the-job training, manuals, instructor-led and e-learning in and outside the Libraries) for Library Assistant 1 – Library Associate 3 and parallel USPS positions. This tool also provides an interactive way of searching and viewing established competencies in certain core areas (families) such as Cataloging, Public Services, and Management.
