Digital Accessibility

GW Libraries and Academic Innovation is committed to making our websites, digital resources and electronic communication accessible to all users. 

If you experience a barrier that affects your ability to access any library content, let us know via GW's accessibility feedback form

GW Libraries web content is designed to comply with Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.1, Level AA. We build our websites and web apps to work across all devices regardless of operating system, browser or screen size. The continual evolution of content, features and code means that some pages or tools may not meet this criteria at all times. Please tell us if you discover content that does not comply with these standards.

Some of our online content (like online books and articles) is built and maintained by outside groups and vendors. GW Libraries strive to have all third party tools comply with digital accessibility standards, but we have no control over the tools themselves.
