How Do You Create Welcoming Spaces?

Hello, 2019! I hope you all had wonderful holidays.

Remember that it’s not too late to register for Breaking Down Barriers: Improving Inclusion for those with Disabilities.

To focus the discussion on welcoming spaces and information-access barriers for those with disabilities, we would like to hear from YOU about what you’re interested in discussing. It would be awesome if you could answer all or any of these questions in the comments, or Tweet at us at @acrlmd.

1) What have you witnessed or experienced (or failed to witness or experience) in your institution that has led you to think there are barriers to your library services and resources?

2) What have you and your colleagues already done to try making your library and workplace more welcoming to the disabled (which could include those with low vision or hearing, or those who are non-neurotypical)? How has it worked for you? How not?

3) What else could be added to this conversation?
