Universal Design in Libraries
Ray Hart, 2021 Showcase
: Universal Design in Libraries is an infographic created for INFO 204 with Piktochart. It highlights the importance of designing library spaces and services for the broadest segment of users. When libraries focus on the normative majority, they create unnecessary barriers to information and services for people with disabilities. Universal Design is the solution to ensure that accessibility is always prioritized within the library.
