This webinar is hosted by the Canadian Association of Professional Academic Librarians's Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) Community of Practice. In this presentation, Dr Daniella Levy-Pinto will talk about the experiences of being provided inaccessible journal articles, eBooks, and other scholarly materials. She will comment on the consequences badly produced reading material has for the blind community and the scholarly community more broadly. Daniella will then describe the work of the National Network for Equitable Library Service (NNELS). The work of NNELS to advance the born-accessible paradigm has been recognized by the Accessible Books Consortium, through the International Excellence Award on Accessible Publishing  in the initiatives category.  Daniella will highlight what librarians in all capacities can do to remove barriers to reading.

The Access Technology Higher Education Network (ATHEN) is hosting the first ever Science, Technology, Engineering, Math (STEM) Accessibility: Starting with Math virtual conference on February 10th and 11th, 2022! Organizers are striving for a diverse conference where experts can share their best practices, solutions, techniques, etc. for accessing and creating accessible STEM content in higher education. This is going to be exciting, novel, resourceful, and enlightening to all who care about accessible content in STEM fields in higher education. There will be 2 concurrent sessions offered each hour so you have reduced FOMO (fear of missing out).

The Citizen Science, Civics, and Resilient Communities (CSCRC) Project aims to engage the public in active learning and resilience planning around heat waves, sea level rise, extreme precipitation, and drought. Throughout 2021, participating science centers from across the US organized and implemented science-to-civics campaigns in their communities with the goal of increasing resilience to extreme weather and environmental hazards through citizen-created data, local knowledge, and community values. In this online workshop we will hear from the CSCRC project team at the Museum of Science, Boston and SciStarter about the outcomes of this NOAA-funded work. Participants will also hear from select NISE Network partners who participated in the project and learn about ways people can engage communities in this programming.
