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.


In December, 2013, NNELS partners launched a repository of downloadable alternate format materials for the print disabled, made available through Canada’s public library network. Across Canada, 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.

NNELS Context:

NNELS is developed with support from The Provincial and Territorial Public Library Council – Conseil provincial et territorial des bibliotheque
