“Lending ebook devices – a legal update from IMLS
The Institute of Library and Museum Services has issued an advisory for libraries that lend ebook readers. They must be accessible to library patrons with print disabilities. http://pld.dpi.wi.gov/files/pld/pdf/ebook_guidance.pdf (5 page PDF)
A librarian told me that a new Nook is accessible. Could anyone please tell me if you’ve used it and whether or not it really is? I called B&N and they pointed me to the Nook HD tablet and Nook ND plus.
Kindles are still marked as inaccessible by the Reading Rights Coaltion (see Feb. 13 post) http://www.readingrights.org”
An important issue toadvocate for.
