The San José State University School of Information is committed to making all of our Internet documents accessible to everyone. To ensure that we meet or exceed the requirements of the 1998 Amendment to Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, we continually review our site and modify pages to remove accessibility problems for people with disabilities.
Most of the documents on our sites are in HTML format, accessible to people who use screen reading software and to those with other vision or mobility impairments. Generally, we use Hypertext Markup Language (HTML) to create pages and documents that are accessible to our site visitors. In creating HTML documents, we follow Section 508 standards; for example, we include alternate text to describe graphics.
Currently, our website contains documents in Adobe Acrobat PDF file format. Most PDF files will be accessible to those who use assistive technology such as screen readers. Some legacy or software created PDF files may not be accessible. If you are experiencing difficulty reading any PDF files please contact the SJSU iSchool Webmaster and we will be happy to send you an alternate version.
All applets, plug-ins, or other applications required by iSchool webpages that are not included on the specific page are found as links from this page.
These links lead to third-party sources sources not maintained by the iSchool. The School of Information does not endorse any of these products; they are listed below for the convenience of our visitors. Address questions about the particular plug-in or file viewer to the respective vendor.
