I wrote a blog post for The History of Place project.

Description: ‘Nina describes how decisions made at a conference in Milan in 1880 may have harmed the education of deaf children for a century, and describes her own experience of becoming deaf and beginning to learn BSL’

I wrote this about my experience with NDACA at Bucks University:

‘From the discussions I had during the week it was clear that the NDACA team are as passionate about access as I am and share my excitement about the potential for new technology to improve access in the future. The library will set a great example to others as to how access can – and should – be done, so that all feel welcome and included. This is what makes this a really exciting project in so many ways; the archive is a rich resource of information, and provides inspirational evidence of creative collaboration across the years.’
