Accessibility and Library Materials

Information on accessibility of materials, software, and hardware for people with disabilities and all our communities

Scope Note

Most of the Library's streaming video subscription platforms are listed here, along with information on accessibility such as closed captions and / or searchable transcripts.

More streaming video databases will be added to this list as they are acquired. 

Note that most streaming video platforms include films from many distributors and time periods. It is possible that there may be some content that deviates from the accessibility norms for that particular database.
