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 guidelines.

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.
