I do not know about these two services in particular, but I do know that in
general, accessibility of catalogs has not been very good. If either of
these do end up being accessible, could you please let the list know?

Thanks and good luck!

Subject: [Athen] library catalog accessibility

Hello -

Do any of you good folks have knowledge of the accessibility of these two
library catalogs: ExLibris' Primo or Innovate Interfaces' Sierra?

My school is in the midst of a RFP and has vendors coming next week, but the
vendors have not yet given us demo access. They've also not yet provided
VPATs, though they've been asked. My quick web search found some helpful
testing results for ExLibris Primo done by a reviewer at Sacramento State
(thank you!) but not much else.

I'd like to have some background on the products' accessibility before the
vendor meetings, so any information will be a great help.

Thanks very much & happy weekend to all!!
