With this change came an entirely new approach to creating PDF based documents.

Goals and Target Audience:
The goals of this session are to disseminate knowledge on how to create Universally Designed PDF documents while following applicable Fair Use and Copyright laws, as well as to publicize the successes of the Inter-Library Loan department’s new approach to creating E-Reserves. Our targeted audience includes faculty, librarians, creators of course materials, those involved with disability services and e-text creation, and anyone else interested in Copyright, Fair Use, or Universal Design for Learning practices.
