Please provide as much detail as possible, including information about how you are accessing the service (when relevant).

Unlimited users:  The former Safari interface only allowed a limited number of individuals to access it at one time, but the new interface is now unlimited.

ADA/Section 508 Compliance: 

Safari states that they are dedicated to making their "online services and content accessible to the widest possible range of users" and provides the following statement regarding Section 508 compliance:  How does Safari address accessibility? 

Based on this information and the fact that Safari now allows for unlimited users the Library has placed it in our list of e-book collections which can be used for required readings. For ELM courses, program and course chairs should request the materials as they would other library resources, and LD&S will perform ADA compliance testing on the specific title or section requested.
