Library is one of the most fundamental resource for any student and
faculty. Many articles, books and journals are offered on-line and
many old and paper-based resources have been transformed into a kind
of electronic format. The on-line availability of resources gives the
researchers the opportunity to conduct their researches and studies
more effectively and productively so now any member of university
community can access the library on-line resources any time at his/her
convenience and from any place. This can increases the quality and
productivity of the researches significantly.
Unfortunately, this great resource is not fully accessible to the users with disabilities and as the result disabled users are not able to perform their researches and studies independently or within a reasonable time and compete with their peer-partner properly.
We just started Elsevier Accessibility Working Group to work collaboratively with our partners in other educational institutions and Elsevier product manager and application developers to identify accessibility problems with the Elsevier Web interfaces and resolve them in such a way that the Web interfaces can be more accessible and usable to everyone including users with disabilities. Please consider to join us in this effort. You can find out how to join this group in the Discussion List section below.
