The Tarjan Center is committed to making sure that people with disabilities have the same access to and use of websites, electronic information, publications and information resources for which the center is responsible. Towards this end, we have created these Accessibility Guidelines to implement both the spirit and requirements of the ADA/504 to produce documents and presentations in a way that makes information easily accessible to a wide range of audiences. While this document is intended to help Tarjan Center faculty and staff, we hope the information will be of use to the UCLA Community, our collaborators, and stakeholders.
These Accessibility Guidelines aim to give guidance when creating internal and external print and electronic documents such as: outreach and marketing materials; resource lists, reports, briefs that will be distributed and posted; newsletters and periodic publications; tables and spreadsheets; presentations and handouts; emails and listserv announcements; web resources, electronic forms, and websites; lectures and conference presentations.
"Accessibility should be like the air we breathe;
I should not have to wonder if it will be there when I wake up in the morning."
(Afi-Tiombe Kambon, Berkeley Art Museum, Pacific Film Archive, 1995)
