Are you using a screen reader?
What exactly do you mean by heading structure?
Let's say you have retrieved an article from one of the databases; usually the results come up in order by publication year (which is from the search terms you entered); however, it is different if you are searching your library's online catalog...

Currently I am a student at DeVry university. I take my classes online. The biggest problem I have with the library is once I do a search is trying to navigate through the hundreds of links to finally find my search results. There is an inordinate amount of links on the page, making it very difficult to find what I need. Once I do finally find my search results it is still difficult to go through them. What I would like to see is a heading type of structure to the results. Each of the article or book titles would be a heading that could be navigated with the command to jump by heading. This would make things a bit easier to navigate.

I am a fellow student (graduated in March) and know the challenges of accessing and utilizing the college library (I also work in one).
I want to do a training with the staff on issues related to accessing the library for students -
My question to you is-
Can you provide me some issues that you may have in accessing or using your college library?
Do you use the library?
What would you like to see happen or change?
**FYI: The library has many resources that I think are great for students with visual impairments. Just recently I found that some databases have a 'Listen' button (once you open an article you have searched for) and you can actually listen to the article. Also, you can access ebooks (in which you can download to ipod, mp3).
If you have any questions or need assistance in regards to library services/resources, I'll be glad to help!!
Thanks in advance for your time!
