New Webinar on ADA Compliance and Your Website 
We all strive to do the right thing for all users and meet federally mandated guidelines. Digital accessibility should be at the forefront of website development, but compliance with the ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act) guidelines can be difficult. Not to worry: On October 25, 2018, at 5:30pm EST, join a webinar with ADA expert Art Frick, as he deciphers and puts into practice ADA compliance for websites. Since 2012, Art has been providing training since to ensure best practices and accessibility of online assets, and to develop digital policies, procedures, and technology solutions that advance equality. In this webinar, you will learn the guiding principles of digital accessibility by learning and decoding the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (the federal standard for digital accessibility), and how to put those guidelines into practice on your bookstore’s website.
