  • By: Anika

An updated version of the Accessibility Information Toolkit for Libraries is now available for download. The toolkit was first developed as a part of the EnAbling Change Program in partnership with the Ontario Council of University Libraries and the University of Toronto, with support from the Government of Ontario. OCUL is please to offer this important resource to all OCUL libraries and the broader community.

Read the Toolkit

This resource was developed to support Ontario university libraries in becoming AODA compliant, outlining best practices, sample policy language and links to useful external tools and initiatives. It also provides an overview of copyright, accessibility and related legislation in Canada and in the US.
It is designed to assist libraries with:

  • developing internal procedures and policy
  • reviewing vendor agreements with accessibility language in mind
  • developing accessible customer service and procurement services
  • developing a greater understanding of what accessibility means in the library and university context.

The toolkit can be downloaded as an accessible PDF from the OCUL website. If you would like a copy of the toolkit in an alternative format please email ocul [at]
