Library Service Standards

A set of service models, standards and training materials for the provision of equitable library access for use by libraries across Canada will be developed. The standards will be formulated in consultation with the library community. They will then be disseminated through an internet portal, training sessions and assistive technology demonstrations provided to library staff. IELA will also provide libraries with information on costing issues related to the provision of equitable library access.
