National Network for Equitable Library Service (NNELS)

Coming together to provide accessible library services for the print-disabled; all citizens have a right to equitable access to library materials, including those with print disabilities.


NNELS partners have launched the Canadian Accessible Library Service (CALS); a repository of downloadable alternate format materials for the print disabled, made available through Canada’s public library network. Across Canada, the National Network of Equitable Library Services (NNELS) offers alternate format public library materials to the print-disabled. NNELS is a publicly funded library service working to integrate access to library materials at the local library card level.
