Education & Outreach Librarian Julie Botnick and our recently graduated NNLM PSR undergraduate student assistant Katherine Zhuo (UCLA ’20), aims to help instructional designers, facilitators, librarians, and web developers build tools and experiences that are accessible to all learners, regardless of whether they fit the mold of the “typical” student.
