The DRM Guide to Disability Resources on the Internet was recommended (*) by the Encyclopedia Britanica Internet Guide, which wrote:
"'Information is power!' is the premise of this wonderfully well-organized site created by librarians and communication specialists as a tool for cutting through the morass of disability-related material on the Web. The frequently updated guide lives up to its stated mission, pointing visitors to carefully selected sources whose aim is to tend the store of knowledge meant to assist people with disabilities in living and working independently. A geographic index quickly links users to organizations, institutions, and other resources close to home. Librarians seeking to make their libraries more accessible to people with disabilities should make it a point to visit Librarians' Connections, a collection of sites supporting the increased availability of Web-based information and technology to disabled individuals through libraries."
