    Abstract:
    In late 2020 and early 2021, the School of Visual Arts overhauled its library website, moving from a standalone site to a subpage of sva.edu as part of a larger project to bring all of SVA's websites into WCAG compliance. Prompted by this college-wide web accessibility initiative, in Summer 2021 the SVA Libraries undertook an accessibility overhaul of our LibGuides platform, following guidelines created by librarians at NYU Libraries. Their guidelines created a structure and checklist for us to follow when making system-wide, guide- and asset-level changes to make our LibGuides accessible to WCAG 2.0 standards. Presented as part of the Centering Digital Accessibility: Projects at Academic and Art & Design School Libraries panel.
