University of Toronto Libraries and online accessibility

UTL is committed to providing all users with equitable access to University of Toronto Libraries’ digital spaces, such as the library catalogue, central libraries’ websites, and digital collections.

Accessibility standards

We strive to ensure our web spaces conform to Level AA standards, as per WCAG 2.0 and AODA (Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act) standards and timelines. This work includes making sites compatible with assistive technologies, such as screen readers, as well as ensuring content is clear and understandable to a wide variety of users. If you experience a barrier when using our web spaces, please let us know

Third party services

If individuals using adaptive/assistive technologies experience barriers when using third party webpages, interfaces, and applications such as databases or e-book platforms, please let us know. We will request that these vendors and/or site owners remove these barriers. We can also suggest suitable workarounds or alternatives in the interim.
