Who we are

The Big Ten Academic Alliance (BTAA) formed the Library E-Resource Accessibility Group in 2015 to address concerns about the accessibility of library e-resources. In 2019, the Association of Southern Research Libraries (ASERL) partnered with the BTAA creating the Library Accessibility Alliance. The group further expanded in 2021 with the addition of the Greater Western Library Alliance and the Washington Research Library Consortium. The Ivy Plus Libraries Confederation (IPLC), Florida Virtual Campus (FLVC), and
University System of Maryland and Affiliated Institutions (USMAI) joined in 2023. The LAA engages with library vendors in initiatives to improve usability of online resources for all users.
