Multimedia Information & Technology Group (North West) Seminar: Technology Without Barriers: Putting Disability Awareness into Practice
Duties under the Disability Discrimination Act require providers and facilitators of public services, and most recently of education and learning, to take reasonable steps to ensure that disabled people are not treated less favourably or placed at a substantial disadvantage. The seminar will address both strategic and action plans for library and information services.
Presentations will be made by:
Mary Keane, Special Services Librarian, Bolton Public Library.
Lenke Csaba, Hearing Impairment Librarian, Bury Public Library.
Lorraine Berry, Academic Team Leader, Bolton Institute.
Joanna Widdows, Electronic Library Services Officer, National Library for the Blind.
