PDFs have become so commonplace that sometimes their presence on the web is overlooked. While they are much better for sharing information than proprietary software, individuals with disabilities can be presented with added barriers when attempting to access files that have not been made accessible.

To help shift NKU websites in a more desirable direction that allows all site visitors access to our information, we are undertaking an annual purge effort. With a short series of events, co-presented by the Marketing and Communications and Information Technology offices, we hope to improve the quality of NKU's digital asset manager and simultaneously improve overall site content. Not only are these steps critical in building a more accessible web environment, they will help ensure NKU compliance with local and federal ADA requirements.

All web editors are requested to participate in NKU's inaugural "The Great PDF Purge".

The resources below will help you with the initial phase of file deletion.  The video below will help you familiarize yourself with the Digital Asset Manager.  You will learn how to identify files that may be more likely to be deleted, and how to download files as a backup before deleting.  From there, view the Decision Tree for additional help with deleting files.
