What are academic libraries doing to advocate and better serve the community of people with disabilities? How does this work connect with serving the community overall on a university campus and making the learning process more accessible?  

The discussion will take a broad view of the following:
•    Access to information resources 
•    Technology (mobile technology, assisted learning design, E-reader use)
•    Providing open access from an economic perspective (open access, pay walls; vendor participation)
•    Access to physical spaces
•    Collaboration/partnerships (present and future)

Speakers include:

Amanda Apgar, Assistant Professor, Women’s and Gender Studies, Bellarmine College of Liberal Arts, LMU (Moderator)
