CABALLERO-CORTES, Laura; FABA-PEREZ, Cristina  and  MOYA-ANEGON, Félix de. Comparative accessibility assessment of Web spaces in Spanish and American university libraries. Investig. bibl [online]. 2009, vol.23, n.47, pp.45-66. ISSN 2448-8321.

The main objective of this research is to analyze and compare the degree in which certain Accessibility Guidelines comply with two groups of web spaces which belong to the same conceptual typology: "University Libraries", but conform two different geographic, social and economical realities -Spain and the United States. Interpretation of results reveals the possibility of using web metrics techniques based on Web accessibility characteristics in order to contrast two categories of closed web spaces.

Keywords : Web accessibility; University libraries; Spain; United States.
