Accessibility and Disability Section

Welcome to the Accessibility & Disability Section!

The SAA Accessibility & Disability Section (ADS) is committed to being an inclusive community in which people with disabilities and allies can learn from each other, share resources, and promote accessibility and disability representation across the archival field.

Founded in 2019, the Accessibility & Disability Section has accomplished a lot in a short time. ADS was honored by an SAA Council Resolution in 2020 for launching the Archivists at Home document. The section has advocated for inclusive interviewing practices and maintains the Guidelines for Accessible Archives for People with Disabilities.

Browse our microsite and blog to find resources for accessibility and directories of disability-related collections.

Do you have an accessibility- or disability-related project you would like to share? Please consider contributing a post for our section blog.
