Ana Pavani's Plenary Session focused on making ETDs accessible to the visually impaired and blind. She drew on the work of Cátedra UNESCO de Leitura PUC-Rio a UNESCO project devoted to reading activites that suggested that the ETD global library could be enhanced to be used by those with other than normal vision. Ana began her talk by giving credit to James Clark Maxwell(1831-1879), the Scottish scientist and inspiration for their institutional repository system.
