The IT and Development subgroup will focus on specific software, hardware, and development practices associated with information organizations. Once a list of technologies associated with specific areas is compiled, they will begin addressing the accessibility concerns of specific entries. We adhere to the same mission and values of our parent organization, the Digital Accessibility Working Group.

Monthly Meetings

For 2022, the DLF DAWG-IT subgroup is moving on from testing the software used by our parent organization and instead will focus on assessing the accessibility of other GLAM technologies. Our initial focus was on Zotero. We're collaborating with a group of librarians in Canada who are already pushing for more accessibility within Zotero.

Then we will move on to Online conference platforms. We've collected notes over the past two years about accessibility issues, and will figure out how to place it into a more useful document for the future.

Meetings will be held on the final Monday of the month, at 11am Eastern/3pm GMT. (Timezone converter) Check the 2022 running agenda for more information, including links to register for the meetings.

Future Technologies to Research

Everyone is welcome to participate, regardless of your own personal level of skill with accessibility auditing. We've compiled an Accessibility Auditing Shortlist that anyone can use to contribute to the knowledge base. The ultimate goal for all of these audits is to make the information freely available to anyone. Google docs is currently used for the initial working document before moving information to the wiki. Contact the Organizers for information on how to join the community and get wiki editing access.
