About the Project


What we want to achieve

Project ALFA is a partnership between the University of Alabama, Wayne State University, the Alabama Public Library Service, and the Florida Department of Education Bureau of Braille and Talking Book Library Services. Project ALFA is a specialization within an ALA-accredited Master's degree program centered on a philosophy of service to a diverse community. It was designed to do so by providing 30 masters degree fellowships. Project ALFA includes design, development, and deployment of:

  • Two exemplar courses that address universal access for libraries and information agencies
  • Virtual-based experiential empathy lab that will allow students first-hand experience with broadly defined disability issues relating to information access.
