Kowalsky and Woodruff provide a road map for libraries to review their accessibility and be proactive in creating inclusive library environments. A minimum goal for libraries would be meeting the requirements of the Americans with Disabilities Act, but they can go much further towards accessibility. They cover writing policies and procedures, setting up facilities, training library staff, maintaining daily operations, collaboration and outreach, programming and workshop ideas, accessible resources and technologies, developing a user-centered culture, and keeping up to date.
