Know & Go: Web Content Accessibility Guidelines: An Overview

Scheduled Dates
Course Description

Web accessibility is always a topic in libraries. With the recent changes in Section 508, more people are starting to take notice. Section 508 is based on the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG: https://www.w3.org/TR/WCAG21/) and was last updated in December 2017.

If you would like a refresher or just need an overview of the WCAG, this is the place. We will go over conformance levels, how to read the Guidelines, and what applies to you (and what might not).
