The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) prohibits discrimination against people with disabilities in the areas of employment, transportation, public accommodation, communications, and governmental activities. Inspired in part by the civil rights legislation of the 1960s, this landmark law was signed by President George H. W. Bush on July 26, 1990. To commemorate this event, the University of Delaware Library Diversity Committee presents an exhibition entitled “25th Anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act.” This exhibition features books, videos, and other information related to the ADA and the topic of disability rights. It will cover four major areas: an overview and explanation of the ADA; an overview of the disability rights movement; implementation and compliance issues; and employment and human resources information.

The exhibition is curated by the members of the University of Delaware Library Diversity Committee: Nicole Allaband, Tammi Kim, Curtis Small, Jr., and Theresa Warren. It will be on display in the Information Area of Morris Library from July 21, 2015 to December 15, 2015.
