Web Accessibility Statements

Third Party Products

Edinburgh Napier University Library Services subscribe to and use a number of third party products and websites to deliver services and access to resources to students and staff of the university. In the following tabs you can find third party accessibility statements from suppliers who provide us with access to online resources. These include e-books, journals, databases, and other tools/platforms such as our reading list system and reference management software.

There may be some platforms and products that are not as accessible as others, and in most cases the information provided should make any potential web accessibility issues clear. The information we have available for some suppliers and platforms is quite minimal or non-existent, so we have noted where this is the case. We work with suppliers wherever possible to encourage the improvement of web accessibility and the availability of improved web accessibility statements.

Some suppliers have a VPAT (Voluntary Product Accessibility Template) which explains how suppliers meet the accessibility standards of Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act (U.S.), however please be aware that there are no measurable criteria to meet these standards equivalent to the WCAG criteria we use in the UK.
