Disability Awareness Resources

Welcome to the MELSA disability awareness resources site!

This site, maintained by the MELSA Accessibility Task Force, includes:

  • Links to videos, apps, tip sheets, webinars, quizzes, articles, and other documents that address general customer service topics to better serve persons with various disabilities as they access library resources and services.
  • Organizations to contact for more in-depth information and assistance.
  • Information for staff and patrons about access to assistive technology from local organizations and at each library system. Links to helpful apps and other digital content are also included.

We hope both new and experienced staff will find the content on the site informative and inspiring. It will continue to evolve as training needs and additional resources are identified.
