Log Number: LG-246431-OLS-20

ArtCenter College of Design proposes to scale and expand national guidelines for archives and special collections in fostering access for people with disabilities by adding new guidelines that address technology design. It is a collaboration with the Society of American Archivists Accessibility and Disability Section and the Braille Institute. The proposal seeks to include: 1. an initial symposium to gather relevant experts and stakeholders to help refine the scope of work; 2. a core development phase to identify and develop emerging best practices via studio-based working groups that include technology design faculty and students collaborating with archival professionals and disability experts in developing technology prototypes that address access challenges; 3. an expanded set of Guidelines for Accessible Archives for People with Disabilities; and 4. additional documentation, such as a website.
