Abstract

Taking Six Steps To Accessible Libraries

This poster highlights the work of the Society of Chief Librarians and Share the Vision in the UK in advocating for improvements in library services for people with sight loss. The Six Steps Promise is one of six Universal Offers and two Promises which have been developed by the Society of Chief Librarians and their partners. Six Steps has around 98% sign up from the public library services of England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland and is a simple charter providing a consistent basic service for people who need alternative ways of reading due to blindness, partial sight or other visual disabilities. The promise is backed by online and face to face workshop training with an email and web based resource to provide solutions to challenges faced by frontline staff.
