Accessible Design for Library Web Sites

April 8, 2010

This isn’t the newest information about making websites accessible, but it’s well organized and was created as a culminating project by a slis student.  I found it by poking around the results of a google search for library website design and was quite amused when I read the author page and saw where it came from.

    Of course a SJSU SLIS student knocked this one out of the park for their project. As you stated some of the information is outmoded (year 2000) with dead links – but the sites’ construction is very organized. For fun I clicked around in the section entitled Interactive Accessibility Handbook and reviewed the appropriate use of color. Must remember to mind my color selections for contrast.

    I agree with Judy, you knocked one out of the park with this one. I too clicked around and two of the sections I found informative was the one on Using Style Sheets and Accessible HTML (especially the dancing dolphins). I will definately bookmark this one for further review

    It is such an organized web site, and a good starting point to review what we have learned in this course. In future, if I have to make a web site, I will definitely go back to this site for guidance. Other classmates have posted very useful online tools (such as one for choosing a color scheme) for making web sites too!
