<p class="MsoNormal">A Google or Yahoo search on "campus accessibility
policy" reveals that the number of campuses implementing (or at least
posting) a system-wide access policy for web pages and digital media seems to be
rapidly growing. Is this an effective way to improve accessibility at a
university or college? Are there other strategies for increasing the
accessibility of a campus' electronic resources? This Webinar will attempt to
answer these questions.</p>
