Accessibility for users.

Geraldine Smith, Learning and Teaching Librarian at the Open University, has agreed to be the JIBs disablity advisor. She fulfills this role at the OU as well, and is a member of CLAUD. JIBs met with Geraldine, and Caroline Moughton, chair of CLAUD, in April. As a result of that meeting, TechDis have been approached by CLAUD to discuss some national standards and guidelines for assessment of the accessibility of resources,

Geraldine has created a page on the Open University Library web site, with her accessibility advice for different databases, having tested them with JAWS.
It is an open page as far as the advice is concerned.
