Description: We want to share our content with as many people as possible and this means making it accessible. There are many ways to look at accessible content. Some of these are obvious and some are less obvious. Librarian Jessamyn West will look at “born digital” content and share resources and tips to help content producers and sharers reach the widest audience they can.

Speaker: Jessamyn West is a library technologist from Randolph, Vermont. She is a nationally known speaker, writer, and educator on the issues facing today’s libraries. Her blog focusing on libraries and politics,, is one of the earliest and longest running librarian websites. She writes a column for Computers in Libraries magazine and is the author of the book Without a Net: Librarians Bridging the Digital Divide. She has taught “Tools for Community Advocacy” for the University of Hawaii’s Library School and was on the Advisory Board to the Wikimedia Foundation.
