covers what SUNY Library Services is doing to address accessibility both internally and for SUNY

Services & Digital Content

From EIT Library Accessibility Guidelines (LAG)

Library Services:

Digitizing Content:

  • Ensure documents and forms digitized or hosted by the library are accessible, or can be made accessible upon request.
    • Examples: brochures, handouts, pathfinders, online course reserves, etc.
    • Refer to Digital Content guide for help, also this site Creating Accessible Documents by University of Washington
  • Perform high quality source document scans
  • When scans for instructional and research materials are requested (e.g., course reserves, ILL), conduct basic OCR scans (text-renderable). Purchasing a new digital document, physical book, or processing by an external vendor may be required to achieve basic accessibility.
  • Identify and purchase materials that are captioned, or allow and promote the use of interlibrary loan to request captioned titles if your library owns the (uncaptioned) item
  • Include transcripts for any media recordings
