Accessibility is becoming an issue that libraries can no longer ignore. Making the Library Accessible for All provides a holistic guide to accessibility that addresses common issues and gives strategies for responding to unique situations. This book is a single-source guide relevant to all library functions that librarians can easily refer to when planning, remediating, or evaluating for accessibility. It has a unique holistic perspective, as well as an emphasis on perceiving people with disabilities as providing resources to meet a common goal rather than as a population to be "served."

MEDIA REVIEWS
[T]his work is of use to any library open to the public, as well as any library that wants to make its services accessible. . . .What makes this book valuable for the novice or uninitiated to the world of accessibility is a list of acronyms and abbreviations at the start, along with three appendixes that offer questions for accessibility resource people, a checklist for presentation/lecture accessibility, and a test plan for hometownlibrary.com. . . .Written in an approachable and nonpreaching manner, this book can be read cover-to-cover for an overview, or individual chapters can be read on an as-needed or as-desired basis. * American Reference Books Annual *
Libraries have long been an entry point and introduction to literature, ideas, and opinions; a window to the world, affordable by all. There is nothing that it is more important to be than accessible to all. And Jane Vincent is the perfect docent-problemsolver to help us understand both the totality of what a library is and how to make its myriad faces accessible. -- Gregg Vanderheiden, Director of Trace Research & Development Center, University of Wisconsin-Madison
