Library users with print disabilities can benefit from access to a wide variety of formats, including DAISY audio, commercial audio, ePub, braille, printbraille. This presentation will take participants on a tour of the main accessible formats available in Canadian public libraries and discuss which formats are useful for different types of users, reading tools, and books. Participants will gain a better understanding of the importance of offering patrons' choice of format and how to help patrons select the best formats for their situation abilities and reading preferences.
