Abstract

Technological change has been the norm for libraries serving people who are blind or otherwise print disabled. Technology is required to produce and disseminate books in various formats, and technical devices are often used as a means for a person to read the books. However, the development of digital technology combined with the evolution of the Internet has prompted significant change for library services and operations in the past few years. The CNIB Library recognized the opportunity to create more content faster, provide more choice and accessibility, and to streamline and revolutionize processes by building the Integrated Digital Library System (IDLS) in partnership with industry technology leaders. This article describes the technology of the IDLS and the impact on the organization.
