Accessibility Standing Group (ASG)

PDF and Digital Materials Remediation Checklist

The PDF and Digital Materials Remediation Checklist provides guidelines for creating digital materials such as ILL scans, controlled digital lending, and theses. 


This group will assist the Diversity and User Experience (DUX) Team in gathering and sharing accessibility policies and practices with the Alliance community.


As the DUX Team moved through the initiative process in 2018-19 accessibility rose to the top as an Alliance focus area. Based on feedback from the Alliance/NWACC joint accessibility survey, there was a clear need for easily accessible resources and training on a variety of aspects of accessibility.
