Notes on Accessibility & Library Databases

The CityU Library strives to provide a fully accessible online experience for all members of our university community. While we design and maintain our website and other core interfaces according to universal design principles, we also provide access to third-party resources such as library databases, which have varying degrees of accessibility.

Fortunately, our largest vendors – such as EBSCO and ProQuest – are compliant with Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act and/or Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG). Please see the list below for specific accessibility features of our principal database platforms. Click each linked title for additional details.
