3rd Party Accessibility Statements

The library subscribes to many publishers, databases, and e-book suppliers for paid content via their websites, which means that some aspects of its accessibility are outside of our immediate control.

Where a 3rd party supplier is listed as not being Accessible, we are actively working with them to achieve compliance, or seeking alternative providers who are WCAG Accessible.

To help accessibility compliance across the sector, the ARU Library supports searchBOX, a centralised, independent directory of third-party accessibility information.

We are in the midst of improving our platform to bring it fully up to AA compliance standards, specifically with regards to color contrast and the mechanics of tabbing through the site. We are also working on updating our VPAT, and adding more detail/further notes. I do apologize that we do not currently have a document that outlines the 2.1 standards plus a word document for Churchill.

IEEE Xplore Content Online WCAG 2.1 EU standards are based on WCAG 2.1, which is what we use in the US, so we are compliant with accessibility guidelines in the EU. US based provider. WCAG 2.1 is not required by government agencies or under Section 508. At this time WCAG 2.1 is not required by the revised US Federal Section 508 standards. The US Access Board would need to start an official process to update the revised standards to reference the updated WCAG. This is a long process and is something the Access Board will have to consider, however, it is unlikely to occur. It is more likely that the US Access Board would pursue incorporation of the next major set of web accessibility standards which are expected from the W3C in around three years. https://www.levelaccess.com/wcag-2-1-replace-2-0-organizations-adopt-2-1/

Passport / Euromonitor Euromonitor No Euromonitor represents that it is committed to the evaluation of improving accessibility of all of its products and will remain committed throughout the term of this Agreement. Euromonitor shall: (1) make best efforts to deliver all applicable services and products in accordance with commercially reasonable best practices for accessibility (2) upon request, will provide the university a timeline for updates; (3) promptly respond to accessibility complaints; and (4) indemnify and hold the university harmless in the event of claims arising from inaccessibility. In terms of how the system can be used with assistive technology, I believe the text-based reports should be readable by text-to-voice programs. You can download the reports as well, which will allow these assistive measures to work offline. The website deals fairly well with being zoomed in for those who have difficulty seeing, but any concerns can be raised with us and we'll address them as and when possible.
