Chief Librarians promote ‘Six Steps’
The Society of Chief Librarians (SCL) has issued a press release promoting the Six Steps campaign, encouraging better library services for blind and partially sighted people.
"Public libraries are adopting six steps in a UK-wide effort to improve access for blind and partially sighted people. For the two million blind and partially sighted people in the UK this will be a lifeline to the leisure, learning and information resources offered by public libraries.
Libraries that have adopted the six steps are providing collections of large print and audio books, making sure accessible technology is available, and have a library champion for the reading needs of blind and partially sighted people.
Six Steps to Library Services for Blind and Partially Sighted People is a joint initiative by the Society of Chief Librarians, Scottish Library & Information Council and Share the Vision."
