The virtual visits at the public library websites are increasing more and more every day. That is why usability is something that becomes very important, especially for those people who have special needs and abilities. Therefore our aim in this bachelor thesis is to determine how user friendly the public library websites in Sweden are for people with special needs and abilities. The research question will be how well do the public library websites comport with the criterias that are used for maintaining the usability for people with special needs and abilities in other countries with respect to the Library Act clause 6? In the method 34 public library websites has been analyzed in two different ways: The first is an audit by an evaluation tool from WCAG that is checking if the websites comply with the A level criteria’s according to the guidelines. The second method examined the website code and specifications against the WCAG 2.0 guidelines. The evaluation has showed that many of the public libraries have very few tools for our target group if any at all. It also showed that they should have better navigation and contrast on their websites. What this thesis implicates that the majority of the public libraries should work on how to be more available and user friendly for people with special needs and abilities.
