Limited Capacity seats available

Know any readers who need to read books in formats other than print? About 10% of Canadians have a visual, mobility, or cognitive impairment that prevents them from being able to read print-books. The National Network for Equitable Library Services (NNELS) is a public library service available in Manitoba that offers public library patrons with a print disability books in formats they can read. In this session, we'll show you how to access those formats using a few different pieces of technology that make information more accessible. We'll also offer tips on what NNELS users are looking for from libraries, where to find treasures in the NNELS collection, and how to market accessible library service in your community. You’ll also learn how to get new users started with a variety of electronic devices including computers, DAISY players, iPads, and Android devices.
