Is Your Library Compliant? Online Access Reviews From the Office of Civil Rights
**Is your online content truly accessible to individuals with sensory disabilities?
**Do you know who your institution’s Section 504 coordinator is? (What is a 504 coordinator?)
**Does your library strategic plan ensure the accessibility of all your online content?

Recent compliance reviews by the Department of Education Office of Civil Rights have demonstrated the need for online content from college and university libraries to be fully accessible. All online materials--from an institution's home page to online courses--must be proactively accessible. Accommodation is no longer an acceptable strategy. Presenters will provide information on recent compliance reviews, student complaints, and consent decrees related to online accessibility in higher education. Discussion will ensue on what libraries can do to institute changes.
