Abstract

Short account of a user experience study carried out by the authors at the University of Kent, comparing the information experiences of students with print disabilities to those of non-disabled students.

In a combined diary and photo study we investigated the experiences of students with print disabilities when accessing information resources, compared to students without disabilities. We hoped to shed light on typical barriers these students encounter, and how such experiences make them feel about their place within the institution.
