Stephanie Rosen, Associate Librarian and Accessibility Specialist at the University of Michigan Library, will lead a hands-on workshop on digital accessibility basics for higher education contexts, with a focus on describing visual resources. Participants will have the opportunity to try their hand at describing images to gain an understanding of how subject matter expertise and accessibility knowledge inform this practice that makes digital content more accessible, discoverable, and useful.

The workshop will be held on Monday, February 11, 9:00 – 11:00am, in Classroom 312 at Woodruff Library.
