Resources believes that libraries can play a vital role in connecting
people with disabilities with information that can help them
lead productive, independent lives. In fact, we started this
section of our web site because the the
editor of Disability Resources
Monthly (DRM) is a librarian, and because so many of the
organizations that subscribe to DRM are libraries. Look on these
pages for information that can help you make your library more
accessible and inviting to patrons with disabilities.
