Diversity and Accessibility: Designing for Innovation and Inclusion
Note: Unfortunately, the originally scheduled keynote speaker, Karen Nakamura, is unable to participate in the NDLC pre-conference event. We are pleased to announce that Mark Riccobono, president of the National Federation for the Blind, will be giving the pre-conference closing keynote address.

This presentation will explore how to go beyond the limits of old models to consider new means of providing access to information in library, archive, and museum fields. Innovation and inclusion begins with individual actions that shape institutional practices. As President of the National Federation of the Blind, Mark A. Riccobono has a unique perspective on access to information, institutional change, and the value of diversity in designing new means of providing access to the world's knowledge. Be prepared to become the change you want to see in the world and interact with the world's first blind driver.

Concurrent Workshops

  • Customer Service: etiquette and effective communication

  • Instruction & Teaching: universal design of instruction

  • Web Design: principles of accessibility, overview of tools

  • Procurement: procedures for buying accessible materials; policy; Voluntary Product Accessibility Template (VPAT); documentation

  • Exhibit Design: collections without barriers

  • The Intersection of Race and Disability

Caught in the Crossfire: A Conversation on Libraries and Communities in Distress
In this town hall, facilitators will share brief comments regarding the role of libraries in times of crises, including ideas such as the need to integrate critical approaches into LIS education and programming; the need for strong community partnerships; strategies for self-care; legal considerations regarding protest and free speech; and how LIS education may play a role in preparing future LIS professionals. We also wish to interrogate the idea of the library as a place of neutrality, a phrase that we have seen made by public librarians on social media. The remaining time will be spent facilitating a town hall discussion strategizing action steps.
