14 Case Study Customer Journey


16 Proforma criteria Library (student) must own a print copy Pre 2000 File may not be accessible for your student Permission for us to scan, labour intensive Alternative titles for problematic texts Non UK may be subject to different copyright Duplicated cost No guaranteed outcome - every publisher has a different approach / response time

17 We’d like the academic supply chain to… Revisit your request service Think about the print layout Use standard accessible scanning options when creating your files Permission to scan… Take responsibility for making a useable E copy

18 We’d like Librarians to… Complain about bad products Stop buying non accessible formats Be proactive with bad reading lists Realise ‘accessible’ doesn’t mean ‘useable’ Don’t make assumptions about E formats Make your in house interfaces accessible Resource our service

19 Librarians working with publishers can ensure ’print disabled’ becomes a redundant term because all books are born accessible, making all learners knowledge enabled.
