The American Indian Library Association is committed to providing the public, including individuals with disabilities, access to its Web-based information and services.

These pages were tested in popular screen readers to help assure user accessibility.

We believe that our web sites are compliant with Section 508 and W3C accessibility design guidelines. If you are a person with a disability and have trouble using our web site - or if you experience difficulty using any of our services, products, or facilities - please tell us about the problem.
