(Internal Event) Universal Design Lagniappe

*Internal event to University Libraries & Learning Services Faculty and Staff* 

Universal Design is “The design of products and environments to be usable by all people, to the greatest extent possible, without adaptation or specialized design” (“The Principles of Universal Design”).  In other words, design that is inclusive of all users, of all abilities.  Broadly, universal design covers every aspect of life, but it is especially important in areas that serve the public—like libraries and universities. 

This lagniappe will cover the seven principles of universal design and give concrete ways to incorporate these principles into life at a university library.  For example, we’ll cover online documents (like emails or PDFs), presentation best practices, and other common areas where universal design can be applied.
