The NCIP Library is a compendium of resources on topics related to implementing technology for students with disabilities. We have recently culled through these resources, deleting those in which the information was out of date and/or no longer relevant given advances in technology. What remains are a set of resources that have enduring value, either because they chronicle sound instructional practices that still apply even though the technologies discussed have evolved, or because the information, although dated, is still relevant.
