Accessibility Statement

What is University of Northampton's Library and Learning Services (LLS) doing to make its website accessible?

In-house systems and content

Library and Learning Services (LLS) has a number of online resources developed in-house and also online resources provided by third-party suppliers.

The LLS team is currently working on our in-house systems and content to ensure each resource is accessible for both the content and the navigability of the platform by September 2020.  

We aim to create in-house content and systems to meet the accessibility standards and the content we create should be compatible with assistive technology.

AbilityNet has advice on making your device easier to use if you have a disability.

Third-party systems and content

We are also working with our third-party suppliers to provide accessibility statements for each platform and identify accessibility issues and solutions.

Depending on our relationship with the 3rd party, we cannot always guarantee its accessibility.

We plan to work with our suppliers to review all linked tools by September 2020 and phase out use where these are inaccessible.

We will make another assessment when the supplier contracts are up for renewal, and check tools for accessibility at that time.
