VPATs intend to measure conformance of section 508 standards by information and communication technology (ICT). Many libraries request VPATs, but aren't sure what to do with them. Implementing an Accessibility Remediation Guide, based on the VPAT, into the E-Resources Workflow will help libraries assess the usability of their purchased ICT by users with disabilities. This session seeks to de-mystify VPAT categories and web accessibility standards for new library professionals or library professionals who are new to digital accessibility. This session will also introduce several different iterations of checklists and accessibility remediation guides, as well as other useful digital accessibility resources, and offer real-life examples of practical implementation of these tools into a digital acquisitions workflow.
