Through the purchase of video and lighting equipment and a dedicated computer station equipped with editing software, a small video production studio will be set up allowing for the Center for Disability Resources CDR Library to produce high-quality videos on topics of interest for parents of 86 with developmental disabilities and for professionals working with those families. Although the CDR and its small team of Program Coordinators currently provide information and support to families of 86 with developmental delays, disabilities, and chronic illnesses in a variety of ways, most of these interactions occur on a one-on-one, in person basis. To promote and improve access to the CDR Librarys collection and information resources, and to encourage more interdepartmental and interagency partnerships, the CDR Library will collaborate with the other Program Coordinators and local disability group content experts to create freely available videos that can be accessed simultaneously by a variety of users; further, the CDR Library will create a YouTube channel to host the videos, and also feature the videos via the librarys InfoAble Portal, a web site designed to help parents and caregivers access quality disability and health information via,,, and the CDR Librarys books and videos collection.
