TLC understands the importance of DEIA

As a woman-owned technology company, TLC understands the importance of DEIA. We’re certified by:

  • Women’s Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC)
  • Woman-Owned Small Business (WOSB).

All our offices practice Affirmative Action and Equal Employment Opportunity. This includes our U.S. offices in West Virginia, Colorado, and Minnesota, plus our international office in Singapore.

We also believe in empowering our customers and supporting their DEIA goals. TLC has collaborated with library customers to advance their Critical Cataloging conversations. Our software provides customers with the control to create solutions for their community.  

TLC also supports the equity of access and control over data. In fact, all data entered into the library’s database remains the sole property of the library. Our customers will have the right to extract their own data in industry-standard formats using TLC software and at no cost to the library.

TLC partnered with the Office of the Civil Rights (OCR) to meet Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act and Title II of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). This partnership has informed the LibrarySolution development path resulting in all new modern web-based interface development targeting WCAG 2.1 AA to ensure ADA compliance.

LibrarySolution is Unicode compliant and the LS2 PAC and LS2 Kids interfaces can be displayed in any language the library chooses, including non-Roman characters. By default, LibrarySolution ships with English, Spanish, and French language files, but supports any language the customers wishes to develop and configure.

TLC’s CARLSolution software is Unicode compliant, developed with WCAG 2.0 and 508 guidelines, and meets ADA standards. We continue to test compliance with each cycle of development. 

The user interface can display in any language the library chooses, including non-Roman characters. Libraries using CARLSolution currently provide English, Spanish, Japanese, Vietnamese, Russian, Chinese, Maori, and Korean to their patrons.

Our web solutions are W3C compliant and accessible with all popular browsers: Chrome, Firefox, Edge, and Safari. The software supports third-party visual aid and magnification tools. We’ve tested with Zoom Text ADA software.
