Sumario:The services and information resources in accessible formats offered by the Library System of the Catholic University of Córdoba (UCCb), framed within the Strategic Plan 2020-2024, are described. In this context, some of the initiatives that were generated around the axis of accessibility and inclusion are presented: the library adapted its website and communication pieces to web accessibility standards; formed a team of professionals specialized in issues related to accessibility; articulated interdisciplinary work with other areas of the university; carried out awareness campaigns on aspects of accessibility to the university community; continued volunteering in digitalization and text editing for people with visual disabilities; implemented an advisory service for the creation and development of accessible educational materials; generated training instances for teachers in relation to the development of accessible written educational materials, presentations and audiovisuals; acquired two listening reading devices that convert printed or digital text into audio; established a supervised professional practice for future graduates in Library and Information Science on the realization of reasonable adjustments on various public documents of the UCCb; and organized an itinerant cycle of inclusive cinema-debate. Finally, some quantitative and qualitative data are provided.
