Presenters: IDRCThis document is a place to find and contribute inclusive design resources you have come across. If you found something interesting, the chances are that someone else will find it interesting too! Why not share it?

The intention of this page is to begin exploring how we gather, compile, and share inclusive design resources in our daily contexts. This will help us discover new and better ways of accomplishing these tasks.

Aside: This document was originally titled: "Community Meeting Notes (Jan 24, 2018) - Pooling and Sharing Inclusive Design Resources"

Share your thoughts and feedback

Your feedback will help us discover new ways of sharing and contributing inclusive design knowledge.

You can:


  • Handling inquiries seeking "situated" information (relevant to context)
  • Starting simple - gathering stuff onto a wiki page. Our own resources and from partners.
  • Questions
    • What questions do our communities have?
    • What kind of resources do we have or recommend?
    • How do we encourage the use of this knowledge resource? (i.e. formality and process)
  • Inclusive Design, Co-Design, and Co-Creation Resources
  • Inclusive Design Guidelines - Research
  • What do we know already and how did we describe them for previous audiences?
  • "a wonderful collaborative mess of stuff"
    • "Draw from the pool"
  • Maybe turn this into a gist so that people can comment and edit?
  • Coordinate with OCAD librarians who publish our scholarly work
  • Shared links and articles via IRC chats
  • Share recorded community meetings via YouTube (and caption first)
  • Summaries of books that we find useful
  • Cherry pick from this stockpile and pull it into another organization for other projects (someone in the project can do the annotation and curation)
  • What things do you draw from this pool for?
    • Links and descriptions or keywords to be able to find it later
    • What sort of workflow each person has to use this for?
    • What project it was for, if it was our own, where we sourced it from if it wasn't ours, tagging/metadata to describe resources in general in order to retrieve them
      • if it applies to specific sectors (which would require specific resources)
  • Make an open Zotero group for anyone to join (
  • Zotero,, or Mendeley
  • Use it day-to-day, reflect on how to use it, how often to use it
  • a general approach to organizing resources:
    • three separate, but related concerns:
      • archiving of IDRC research artefacts, which we will work with the OCAD library to help with
