The original checklist for accessible Libraries was published in 2005 by International Federation of Library Associations and Institution and written by By Birgitta Irvall and Gyda Skat Nielsen.

Due to developments in assistive technology, formats and library communication channels the standing committee has decided to revise and update the publication.

The work was initiated during the midyear meeting 2019 I Sofia Bulgaria and is planned to be finalized during the 2020 midyear meeting In Tokyo, Japan.
