Federal Agency Complies with Sec. 508

Sabrina I. Pacifici notes the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) has announced itself as the first federal agency to fully comply with the provisions of Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973. The USPTO�s Section 508 program is a model for other federal agencies with its success based on three principles� creating awareness, placing responsibility and ensuring enforcement.

Any Utah State Agency with a website in compliance with Section 508 should toot its horn by contacting Lou Reinwand at the State Library.
