Accessibility Statement for Alma
Alma is a cloud-based library system developed by Ex Libris. The University of Huddersfield began using the system in May 2018.
Two parts of the system are accessible to library users and are covered by this accessibility statement:
- Alma Services Page
- Library Account Page
Alma Services Page
The Services Page is typically displayed after clicking on a search result in Summon. It can show book availability in the library or provide links to the online full text of a book or journal article.
Library Account Page
The Library Account Page provides details of items on loan from the library, requests, and fines.
A general Accessibility Statement for Alma is available as a PDF on the Ex Libris web site:
Reporting accessibility problems with the Alma pages
We are always looking to improve the accessibility of our services. If you find any problems, please email library.support
As the University is not the developer of the software, we can only raise a support call or submit an enhancement request.
The Equality and Human Rights Commission (EHRC) is responsible for enforcing the Public Sector Bodies (Websites and Mobile Applications) (No. 2) Accessibility Regulations 2018 (the "accessibility regulations"). If you're not happy with how we respond to your complaint, contact the Equality Advisory and Support Service (EASS).
Technical Information about Alma's Accessibility
Alma is a product developed by Ex Libris and is partially compliant with WCAG 2.0. The areas without full compliance are largely only accessible to library staff.
