Event

Accessibility and the McGill Library

Wednesday, November 4, 2020 12:00to13:00

Presented by: Dana Ingalls, Liaison Librarian, McDonald Campus Library, Chair of Library Accessibility Working Group

Dana will be talking about McGill Library accessibility before, during, and after COVID-19 closures. First, offering a brief introduction to library accessibility best practices generally, discussing access to the physical space, what is available now and what issues we’ve identified with current set-up. Second she'll talk about the challenges posed by the library closures, and what we were able to do to continue offering accessibility services. Finally, she'll discuss how things currently stand as regards physical accessibility (which may of course change between now and November), and some of the things we hope to accomplish once the libraries are fully operational again.

McGill University is on land which has long served as a site of meeting and exchange amongst Indigenous peoples, including the Haudenosaunee and Anishinabeg nations. We acknowledge and thank the diverse Indigenous peoples whose presence marks this territory on which peoples of the world now gather.
