Abstract [en]

Awareness of accessibility issues alone is the first step for potentially providing accessible resources to all online users, disabled or not. In addition to providing an overview of what encompasses the definition of disability in North America, common web barriers associated with accessibility, and the tools available for evaluating the accessibility of web resources, this review focuses on the available research studies applicable to the accessibility of specific remote-accessed, web-based products provided by academic institutions that that are directly, and indirectly, used for e-learning. Literature discussing how (academic) libraries and organizations can help in the provision of accessible web resources is also presented.
