Innovation occurs at the margins. Librarians as stewards of public knowledge have a commitment to serving the full community and an interest in engaging and enhancing the knowledge and interests of all community members. Design that encompasses the requirements of individuals with extraordinary challenges benefits everyone and pushes our thinking and practice further. This workshop will introduce participants to the theory and practice of inclusive design, or design that addresses the full range of human diversity with respect to ability, language, culture, gender, age, and other forms of human difference - to meet legislative obligations and to creatively address foundational responsibilities of librarianship.
