Welcome to LEAP banner


The Library eResources Accessibility Portal (LEAP) is an assessment tool that allows library staff at participating institutions to evaluate the accessibility of library eresources, and provides a growing repository of accessibility assessment reports that library staff can review to help make acquisition decisions, support library users, and advocate for accessible eresources.

The LEAP assessment tool was launched in April 2020. It was developed to assist college libraries in upholding accessibility best practices and achieving compliance with the requirements of the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA) for ensuring the accessibility of electronic resources (IASR, 2011, s. 18(3)). You can find out more about the history of LEAP on the LEAP OCLS service page.

With OCLS’s support, LEAP is directed by College Libraries Ontario, with work falling under the purview of the LEAP Steering Committee.
