GAAD logoIn celebration of international Global Accessibility Awareness Day (GAAD) on May 16th, UCSF Web Services is hosting a drop-in event at the entrance and main floor of the Parnassus Library.

The purpose of GAAD is to get everyone talking, thinking and learning about digital (web, software, mobile, etc.) access/inclusion for people who have different abilities. While people may be interested in the topic, the reality is that they often do not know how or where to start. Awareness comes first.

Stop by to become more aware about digital accessibility and celebrate the right of every individual to enjoy equal access to the Internet.

Visit us anytime between 10 am - 1 pm at the Parnassus Library main floor on May 16, 2019 for our UCSF GAAD event.

Please sign-up if you would like to attend so we can get an idea of how many people to expect.

This event is co-sponsored by the UCSF Library.

Web Best Practices
Many times people want to create "intranet sites" at UCSF. A good way to create a small private website is to configure a your site as a private site. These sites should not be used to handle data covered by HIPAA (patient data) or FERPA (student data).
