Access/ibility: Access and Usability for Digital Publishing
Readings and Resources
While not a comprehensive list, the following readings served as starting points for the seminar and provide a series of conceptual frames for the work of the project as we worked to categorized and share key works from each of our areas of specialization. These readings include monographs, edited collections, blogs, webtexts, and a range of other genres and resources; in future iterations, this list will become a more formal annotated bibliography.
