There has been a shift in the way people access information: eBooks and the widespread use of graphics to convey information have created a "new normal" for how we read and learn. While these resources are readily available, too many of them are not accessible. As a result, people with disabilities such as vision impairments, physical limitations and severe learning disabilities, often face barriers to information. Benetech/Bookshare has partnered up with the New York Public Library and others to provide free access to over 400,000 books, periodicals and more to qualified library patrons.
