This bill establishes requirements for instructional materials for
students with disabilities at public and private institutions of higher
education and has pretty serious implications for some units on campus. It
was signed on March 26 and goes into effect June 10.

How timely that the next accessibleWeb meeting is on making PDF and .doc
files more accessible! I know that a few folks from the Libraries'
electronic reserves unit will be at the meeting on the 20th.
