Libguides Accessibility Statement

The SpringShare LibGuides website is run by Aberystwyth University.  We want as many people as possible to be able to use the site and are committed to ensuring digital accessibility for people with disabilities. For example, that means you should be able to:

  • Zoom text to at least 200% without it spilling off screen
  • Navigate using just a keyboard
  • Skip to main content by using tab on your keyboard
  • The website can be used by a screen reader
  • Navigate the website with speech recognition

AbilityNet has advice on making your device easier to use if you have a disability. AbilityNet is a UK charity that exists to change the lives of disabled people by helping them to use digital technology at work, at home or in education. You can find out about AbilityNet here:

Measures to support accessibility

We are using the following measures to ensure accessibility of Aberystwyth University’s website:

  • Ensuring that the Library’s content (through third-party providers) is accessible and meets the needs of all of our students
  • Ensuring that we are adhering to current legislation and accessibility requirements

How accessible is our website?

We know some parts of the LibGuides website aren't fully accessible:

  • Some images don’t display alt-text for images
  • Some links don’t have discernible text (icons)
  • Some of the content (titles, boxes and tabs) cannot be read with a screen reader

What we’re doing to improve accessibility

We are currently addressing these issues by adding in appropriate alt-text into images.

Reporting accessibility problems with the website

We’re always looking to improve the accessibility of these websites. If you find any problems not listed on this page or think we’re not meeting accessibility requirements, contact: with the specific issues you are experiencing, and we will respond to your report.
