Universal Design for Libraries and Librarians
Instructors: Holly Mabry, Digital Services Librarian, Gardner-Webb
University; and Jessica Olin, Director of the Library, Robert H. Parker
Library, Wesley College
May 15 to June 19, 2017
Universal Design is the idea of designing products, places, and experiences
to make them accessible to as broad a spectrum of people as possible,
without requiring special modifications or adaptations. This course will
present an overview of universal design as a historical movement, as a
philosophy, and as an applicable set of tools. Students will learn about
the diversity of experiences and capabilities that people have, including
disabilities (e.g. physical, learning, cognitive, resulting from age and/or
accident), cultural backgrounds, and other abilities. The class will also
give students the opportunity to redesign specific products or environments
to make them more universally accessible and usable.
