Accessibility of Chalmers library's website
This website is run by Chalmers University of Technology. We want as many people as possible to be able to use this website, and this document describes how lib.chalmers.se complies with the accessibility regulations, any known accessibility issues, and how you can report problems so that we can fix them.
How accessible is the website?
The website is partly accessible in accordance with the law on accessibility to digital public service. To the extent that there are known deficiencies, these are reported below, as well as how these are to be solved.
Reporting accessibility problems with this website
We're always looking to improve the accessibility of this website. If you find any problems that aren't listed on this page or if we're not meeting the requirements of the accessibility regulations, contact us and let us know about the problem.
You can contact us in the following ways:
- Use the Ask us-form in the footer to contact us
- Send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org
- Call the library information desk 031-772 3737 (kl 10-14)
The Agency for Digital Government is responsible for enforcing the accessibility regulations. If you're not happy with how we respond to your complaint, contact the Agency for Digital Government to lodge a complaint.
Content that's not within the scope of the accessibility regulations
The following items are not in accordance with the law
- Some colour contrasts are not high enough. (WCAG 1.4.3)
- In some cases HTML is used to format the content (WCAG 1.3.1)
- There is a few places with missing code description to programmatically determine some types of information and relationships (WCAG 1.3.1)
- The same link titles is used for different link destinations in some cases (WCAG 2.4.4)
- The markup code has a few errors in the the W3C MarkUp Validator (WCAG 4.1.1)
We aim to improve these issues before 31 januari 2021.
In-house developed applications
The web application where you register for an library account, including the possibility to change PIN-codes, correspond essentially to the accessibility regulations.
Third-party system integration
A couple of purchased third-party systems are integrated into the website where Chalmers has no possibility to adjust code or accessibility. The most important systems:
- The discovery system EDS (EBSCO) directed toward the library users to find materials in our collection, including books, journals and articles. The current EDS version is insufficient when it comes to accessibility, but a new, improved version is expected next year.
- The library guide software LibGuides is under a major review where accessibility is taken into account.
