Lingnan University has won a Gold Award for the third consecutive year in the Web Accessibility Recognition Scheme co-organised by the Office of the Government Chief Information Officer (OGCIO) and the Equal Opportunities Commission (EOC). Ms Rachel Cheng Jui-chung, Chief Information Officer and Librarian, received the award on behalf of the University on 13 April.
The scheme aims at promoting the awareness of web accessibility to facilitate access to online information and services by all community segments, including the visually/hearing impaired. We have nominated the Lingnan homepage, Information Technology Services Centre website, Registry Overseas Admission website and Research website to enter for the scheme and have successfully complied with the 24 judging criteria of the Gold award.
