About the Bridges Resource Library

On August 29, in honor of National Library Week, the Bridges Resource Library opened its (virtual) doors. The Bridges Resource Library provides a much-needed one-stop-shop for blind/low vision students, their families, their educators, their service providers, and their community allies in Maryland.

Your one-stop resource

Using this tool, stakeholders have instant access to accurate and up-to-date information to answer questions and explore options. The well-researched and accessible components of the Bridges Technical Assistance Center’s Resource Library address areas of concern to secondary transition for blind/low vision students, and it includes Maryland-focused resources, information about accessible assistive technology tools, informational and procedural guides, and much more!

Accurate and current information at your fingertips

We have committed to keeping this information updated. Each entry contains information about the date on which the information was current.

As part of the Bridges Technical Assistance Center’s work, we will confirm that the links and information in each entry are up-to-date at least once every six months. If you find any broken links or any other concerns about an entry, please reach out to us, and we will fix the issue!

Please check out the Bridges Technical Assistance Center’s Resource Library today!
