ADA and museum accessibility

From: Sally Shelton <libsdnhm>
Date: Wednesday, August 10, 1994
The San Diego Natural History Museum is in the initial planning stages
for a building extension which will improve and increase the space
available for collections and all collections-based activities. We would
like to make all our collections and research areas fully usable and
accessible, going above the legal requirements if necessary. We are
particularly looking for input from people with disabilities as to what
they require when using museum collections, what design features and
accommodations we need to include, what good (and bad) experiences they
have had with using research collections, and any other comments or
anecdotes that would help us design our new areas. Please reply
off-list; we will be glad to summarize responses if anyone is
interested. Thank you for your help.
