Accessibility

This website has made every reasonable effort to comply with common, widely adopted accessibility guidelines such as the Worldwide Web Consortium (W3C). Wherever possible, most pages, content and features on the website have been designed to work properly with online reading devices and software. All major website pages were created to allow visually impaired users to use the site effectively using a screen reading aid. For example, images generally have descriptive text. The major software components – Drupal, CONTENTdm – used for this website also take into account accessibility guidelines. Extensive use of software and display tools that do not interact with accessibility equipment has been avoided, although it was necessary to use them for some value-added functions.
