- Evaluating Your Website for Accessibility Compliance and WCAG 2.1
Websites need to be accessible so that anyone can use them including users who use assistive technology and even common technologies simply in ways we may not predict. Join us to learn about Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) including what’s new in version 2.1 and how to get an accessibility audit done using free resources and tools to evaluate your website.
- Mastering the Information Environment: Information Behavior in Library Workplaces
As the information horizon expands, the ways in which people store, index, search, access, curate, preserve, and use information diversifies. To capture these activities, “information behaviour” engages in a wide range of research in order to understand the human relationship to information.
- Maps, Atlases, and Geographic Literacy
This session spans the topics of collections, tech tools, and digital literacy through a geographic lens. Librarians have been meeting geographic information needs for as long as there have been libraries. Like all areas of librarianship, the methods used to meet this needs have evolved over time, especially since the onset of the digital age.
