The IMLS-funded project "was developed based on the types of help-seeking situations identified by several BVI user studies that investigated BVI users’ interactions with existing DLs; it was further enhanced based on feedback from key stakeholders of DLs, including users, scholars/experts, and developers. The DLAUG is organized by help-seeking situations based on the frequency of occurrences of the situations and their impact on BVI users’ information search process."
