SC Libraries Assistive Technology Resources Survey

This survey is being conducted by the Outreach Committee of the Assistive Technology Advisory Committee under the Chief Information Officer, Budget and Control Board. We are gathering information about the state’s assistive technology resources so that we can have a central location on the web for this information and to facilitate networking among assistive technology service providers in our state. This information is being gathered for informational purposes and not in an attempt to "test your compliance" or evaluate programs. If you have any questions about the survey, please contact Janet Jendron at Janet.Jendron@uscmed.sc.edu or 803-935-5273.
