MLA (UK) launches web resource on disability information and learning for public library staff

From "24 Hour Museum" (UK) webpage, 17 Feb 2006:
The Museums, Libraries and Archives Council (MLA) has launched a new web resource to provide information and learning for public library staff relating to access and equal opportunities for disabled people...

... the resource aims to improve access to libraries and library services for people with disabilities by supporting the staff who work with them. It does this through a range of resources including learning modules, case studies and background materials...

The resource includes a set of ten learning modules, which together form a flexible self-study package, to be used by individuals and groups from front-line staff to senior management.

Here's the full article.

Something that Public Libraries in Singapore could strive to do... in fact, it's something I'd want to incorporate into the workplans within the next five years for my team. I've got to give this more thought.
