B105: Designing Innovative, Accessible, & Elegant Web Spaces

3:15 p.m. - 4:00 p.m.
Rachael Montgomery, Director, Accessible Community
Maddie Clybourn, Digital Services Manager, Prince George's County Memorial Library System (PGCMLS)
Vlad Udachin, Web Developer, Prince George's County Memorial Library System (PGCMLS)

This session focuses on common accessibility problems with technology in libraries and how to fix these issues to better ensure an inclusive digital environment. Montgomery reviews web accessibility for library sites and catalogs as well as accessibility challenges for kiosks such as electronic book drops. She also shares ideas for using technology to solve physical accessibility challenges. The PGCMLS digital services team shares their journey to transform an anachronistic public website into a beautiful, inclusive and accessible digital space in total compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act. Udachin discusses challenges and success using modern coding languages within the confines of a content management system. Clybourn addresses website usability and functional design features. She also will elaborate on her project to embed 360-degree images for greater digital mobility into PGCMLS' individual branch pages. As all websites are living and breathing organisms, our speakers look at future improvements and trends for accessible, elegant and ethical web spaces
