Accessibility in repositories

03.10.2022

Compact guidelines for practical work - Open Access for all!

The "Accessibility" working group of the Repository Managers Network (RepManNet) has created guidelines that provide straightforward instructions on how to design accessible content for repositories.

The guidelines are archived in Phaidra, as a PDF and also as a Word file, to ensure easy adaptation - because the technical possibilities for creating accessible media are constantly expanding.

Whether PDF, Word, Excel, image, video or sound - with simple tricks, content can be designed in such a way that it is easier for many to consume, in other words: Open Access for All!
