Hi All,

I was contacted by Molly Schwartz, who's working with the Library of
Congress to develop a new toolkit that will help research libraries
make their digital collections and services more usable and
accessible. She's seeking participants to do some accessibility and
usability testing.

Here's how Molly describes the toolkit:

"The toolkit will include a suite of solutions, organizational models,
and best practices for the research library community will be compiled
so that the research library community may collect, produce, curate,
preserve, and make available their digital assets in a fully inclusive
and accessible way."

They will be conducting iterative usability and accessibility tests on
the toolkit as they develop it and would like to test it on real
future users. Since many of you probably work closely with folks from
your libraries, please forward this message on to anyone you know who
might be interested.

Interested persons should contact Molly directly: molly at arl.org
