Web Accessibility: Third party Statements

Accessibility compliance information from our third-party resources such as e-book and journal platforms and databases.

Third-party accessibility statements

In the table below you can find accessibility statements for the digital resources City Library subscribes to, including e-books, online journals and databases. Where accessibility information is not publicly available, we have contacted our suppliers to request the information. 

Some suppliers have provided us with a Voluntary Product Accessibility Template (VPAT), which is a self-evaluation of how accessible their product is. Where possible we have supplied a link to this information. Some suppliers have requested that their VPATS are not published, in those cases we can supply details on request.

We will continue to work with and chase suppliers for the information. Accessibility compliance and the visibility of accessibility information form key criteria when making decisions for subscriptions renewals.

We can arrange an alternative format of content which is not accessible. Please see our alternative format guidance.
