Accessibility Statement is committed to the principles of accessibility. We have made every effort to comply with Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act Amendments of 1998 (29 U.S.C. 794), the accessibility standards for implementing Section 508 issued by the U.S. Access Board, and web content accessibility guidelines developed by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C). The site is monitored and tested regularly by internal and third party accessibility consultants to identify any usability issues as well as discover new solutions to further improve the accessibility of our site. Our current accessibility features include:

  • Alternative text detail for appropriate images and other non-text elements;
  • Title attributes for additional information about links and indication of new browser windows;
  • Structural markup to indicate headings and lists to aid in page comprehension;
  • Relative font sizes to enable users to change the size of text on the page.

In addition, embedded documents and multimedia accessibility efforts are under way. While we cannot ensure that all of the linked documents or web pages are accessible, we have attempted to provide the most accessible information possible. If you are having trouble reading a PDF document on this website, Adobe offers a free online tool for converting PDF documents to HTML or text. For more information about PDF accessibility see the Adobe website accessibility section. For more help with Acrobat files generally and a link to download Acrobat Reader see the site help page.

Content has been written in language appropriate for the audience of the site (librarians), and has undergone usability testing with the targeted population.
