CAPAL Web Content Accessibility Guidelines COP

Interested in joining CAPAL’s new “Web Content Accessibility Guidelines” community of practice?

The Education and Professional Development Committee of the Canadian Association of Professional Academic Librarian’s (CAPAL) has approved a community of practice on Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG). WCAG is about making websites, apps, and content more accessible for people with disabilities.

The community of practice will focus on studying the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (2.0) and engage in activities to enrich our understanding of them and ability to implement them.

This group is relevant to CAPAL members who have technical aspect to their jobs, regularly create web content, or procure web-based content and services for academic libraries.

Organizer: Mark Weiler (Web & User Experience Librarian, mweiler[at], Wilfrid Laurier University) will be leading the group.
