A Consolidation Of Challenges Faced By School Libraries In Developing Countries, Liah Shonhe

Library Philosophy and Practice (e-journal)

Achieving quality education is a challenge for many developing countries.

As a result, school libraries need to be fully equipped and have effective library services to support the teaching and learning process.

Eighteen Blind Library Users’ Experiences With Library Websites And Search Tools In U.S. Academic Libraries: A Qualitative Study, Adina Mulliken

Publications and Research

Telephone interviews were conducted with 18 blind academic library users around the U.S. about their experiences using their library and its website. The study uses the perspective that blind users’ insights are fundamental. A common theme was that navigating a webpage is time consuming on the first visit. Issues identified include the need for “databases” to be defined on the homepage, accessibly coded search boxes, logical heading structure, and several problems to be resolved on result pages. Variations in needs depending on users’ screen reader expertise were also raised. Suggestions for libraries to address these issues are offered.
