Free Training on Libraries and Disabilities

Want to learn how to ensure your library is inclusive and accessible for all? Project ENABLE (Expanding Nondiscriminatory Access By Librarians Everywhere) offers free online training that will help you develop the programs, services, facilities, resources, and technology to meet the needs of students and patrons with disabilities. The introductory video above offers a good overview of what the site offers.

Interactive training modules include:

  • Disability Awareness
  • Disability Law and Policy
  • Creating an Accessible Library
  • Planning Inclusive Programs and Instruction
  • Assistive Technology in Libraries
  • Targeting Autism in Libraries

They are currently in the process of creating an extensive Train the Trainer section that will be available in early 2021.

Since 2012, Project ENABLE, funded in part by a series of grants from the Institute for Museum & Library Services (IMLS), has offered the most comprehensive, totally free, online training site for librarians who wish to provide the most effective accessible spaces and inclusive programs and services to people with disabilities.
