 2015 Summer Seminar:
Access/ibility in Digital Publishing

 JULY 7–10, 2015

 Director: Cheryl E. Ball
Associate Director: Sara N. Ash Georgi

 This seminar will explore the role that editors, authors, publishers, and
information scientists can take in promoting the accessibility of digital
texts. For the purposes of this workshop, accessibility will be explored
with a wide range of definitions, including open access, access and
preservation (metadata), and accessibility to scholars. This four-day
workshop will bring in a range of speakers from each of these themes to
help guide workshop participants towards creation of a working document
that outlines some current best practices in accessibility standards for
digital scholarship, including media-rich digital projects.

 We hope that participants will include scholars working in these areas,
such as editors of digital journals, digital scholarship librarians, and
authors working on digital projects, as well as scholars who are interested
in helping facilitate these discussions and the formation of these

 We hope that the roles of both speakers and participants blur into a
collective working group that produces guidelines that help us take the
21st century of publishing into the 22nd.
