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.

Third party services

Individuals using adaptive/assistive technologies may experience barriers when using third party webpages, interfaces, and applications such as databases or ebook platforms. Although we cannot change these resources ourselves, we aim to better understand which resources cause barriers and provide feedback and recommendations to these vendors and/or site owners.

For more information

We would like to hear your comments and questions regarding the accessibility of our online spaces. Please contact us to submit your feedback or report an accessibility issue. We read all incoming messages and strive to respond to feedback within three working days.

For information about building and public service accessibility at the libraries, please see the Services for People with Disabilities section of the library’s website. For resources and events facilitated by the University of Toronto for faculty, staff, and students, please see the AODA Office website.
