Two interesting web sites relating to disabilities

This article was originally published in the Spring 2000 issue of the Expert Witness.

We recently learned of two excellent web sites that may interest our readers. The first, titled Electronic Resources on Disabilities, contains a list of web site links which “identifies information sources on disabilities in general, assistive technology, associations and organizations, government resources, and sites centered on specific disabilities, as well as Web page accessibility.” You will find this site here.

The second site is the National Rehabilitation Information Center (NARIC). It can be found at For 20 years, their staff “has collected and disseminated the results of federally funded research projects. NARIC’s literature collection, which also includes commercially published books, journal articles, and audiovisuals, averages around 200 new documents per month.” They are funded by the National Institute on Disability and Rehabilitation Research to serve anyone who is interested in disability and rehabilitation. One of their most interesting features is a monthly bibliography service that will email you a list of the latest documents that have been added to the REHABDATA database (within your specified area[s] of interest). You will find this service here.
