  • through widely available rich audio and text books with descriptions of images and/or in tactile formats
  • through personalized ways of reading

Presentations will raise and discuss such topics as:

  • Facilitating the book selection process
  • Changing role of the librarian from the Marrakesh perspective
  • Finding and sharing accessible materials and collections
  • Accessible audio book technologies
  • Serving the full spectrum of print disabilities
  • Creating inclusive communities through programming and events
  • The added value of an analog service in the heart of the digital era.
  • Promoting Braille literacy
