  2. Thank you for this! I'm trying to improve the accessibility of my community college library (and the college in general), partially (but not only!) by asking my friends with disabilities what makes it easier for them. For instance, how much room between shelves actually makes them accessible for people in motorized wheelchairs (which tend to be larger)?

  3. Thank yo ufor this.

    My partner and I are both disabled librarians and always spend out way cringing through disability training in the workplace presentations, and how it doesn't even begin to take into consideration disabled workers, let alone really do any good for patrons with disabilities. We are determined to come up with a panel or presentation by people with disabilities for libraries, because our voices are so rarely amplified.

    1. That is awesome, Amy. While I didn't want to encourage able-bodied librarians to contact me first to present on accessibility, working on a project with other disabled librarians sounds amazing and something I'd love to be a part of, if you'd like another hand (literally because I only have one good one to offer [wink emoticon])

    2. I will make note of this! We have another friend who has an MLIS and has just started a disability studies master's degree that we want to get in on this, but we're just waiting on life things to get out of the way first (like moving and a wedding!)
