This chapter explores assistive technology and its implications for people with disabilities. Using the Australian experience as a foundation, the authors discuss assistive technology and disability; how assistive technology facilitates ICT use; how libraries can promote assistive technology; and how libraries can select assistive technology that will be used by their patrons.

Impact and interest:

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
