The National Network for Equitable Library Service (NNELS) is excited to announce the receipt of support from the Government of Canada’s Social Development Partnerships Program – Disability Component (SDPP-D), a program designed to improve the participation and integration of people with disabilities in all aspects of Canadian society, with respect to social inclusion.
The funding of $1 million will enable NNELS to continue to improve equity in access and services for Canadian readers with disabilities, through partnerships with publishers, publisher associations, disability organizations, libraries, and other key stakeholders, as well as expansion of the NNELS collection. It will also allow NNELS to continue to build capacity and offer stable quality employment opportunities to people with print disabilities in the areas of accessibility testing, analysis, software development, and leadership.
