Inclusivity Through Documentation: Using Gestalt Principles and Plain Language to Create Effective Documents, part 2

Library workers provide instruction and training materials to students, faculty, staff, and colleagues. Document creators must include accurate information and follow guidelines for materials to be readable and accessible. We should keep the needs of people with visual, motor, and cognitive impairments in mind when creating materials. This can improve usability for all users.The presenters will demonstrate how adhering to these and other guidelines will improve accessibility and functionality. We will direct attendees to resources to help librarians create usable documentation. Workshop attendees will apply knowledge learned through an interactive “document redesign” activity.
