Session 5B | Panel | Accessibility of Content in Institutional Repositories: Going Beyond Open Access
Academic libraries play an important role in meeting the needs of their campus communities, including providing access to digital resources for all patrons. Making content accessible often includes collaboration with academic departments, administration, ADA offices, information technology, and other stakeholders. Approaches to accessibility for digital resources vary by institution depending on available resources, infrastructure, and the digital tools being used. In many cases the concern is not just with newly submitted material, but also existing content that may have been added over a course of several years. This panel will discuss accessibility efforts at three different campuses as it relates to audio and video digital content in their institutional repositories. Each institution will share the approach they’ve taken, what resources they have focused initial efforts on, and what they anticipate next steps to be. The panel will also share perspectives from users of content, and why accessibility efforts are so important.

Session 6A | Panel | Post-Custodial Praxis at LLILAS Benson: Lessons in Digitization, Access, and Community Partnerships
LLILAS Benson Latin American Studies & Collections works in partnership with archival organizations and community partners in Latin America to digitally preserve underrepresented histories and human rights documentation. By adopting a post-custodial archival model, we can support goals of digital preservation and access without physically removing collection materials from communities that use and identify with them. This panel will bring together archivists, partners, students, and scholars to share best practices, workflows, and lessons learned from a diverse array of post-custodial projects.
