" You want your library to b e a welcoming place for all students, including students with disabilities. What are you doing on the administrative end to ensure your policies and public communication, such as information on your website, work in harmony with your good intentions? This workshop will be the delivered from the perspective that policies are a tool of communication. They communicate culture to internal constituents and offer practical information to external constituents. Learn about the social justice model of disability and its practical application for policy makers and those charged with public facing communication. How do you provide services for students when you may have to deal with the reality of an older building that is “grandfathered in ” and not yet ADA compliant? How should the social justice model of disability affect the policies we create from collection development to instruction? Unfortunately, some libraries are not able, due to various institutional constraints, to change policy. The information in this presentation can also be used to create public communications on your website, such as an FAQ that would communicate your good intention as well. "
