Online Accessibility

Read Harvard University’s Digital Accessibility policy.

Harvard Library is committed to providing online services, tools, and resources that are available to everyone in our community, including people with disabilities.

Harvard Library follows WCAG standards and regularly tests our online interfaces with users of assistive technology. We work closely with vendors to address accessibility issues. If you are an assistive technology user, please consider joining our accessibility testing participant pool

We are working towards universal access, but there may be some gaps. If you are unable to access an online resource due to a disability, please contact us using Ask a Librarian.
