Two academic libraries share their approach to creating a place at the table for library users with disabilities. These two libraries are working to strengthen the relationship between the Libraries and Disability Services. Library staff can properly assist students and others with disabilities by learning how to identify problems, collaborate with Disability Services, and utilize library services to accommodate specific needs. Developing programs geared towards different audiences can include: outreach at various campus events; orientation for new students to services in the library; disability awareness training for library staff; and investing in accessibility equipment. Let us share recipes from two different libraries that may inspire you to make your table more welcoming to all.
