    A critical element of accessibility research is the exploration and evaluation of ideas with representative users. However, it is often difficult to recruit these users, particularly in a timely manner. In this paper we report on the establishment of a large user pool created to facilitate accessibility research through recruiting sizeable numbers of older adults potentially interested in taking part in research studies about technology. Lessons learned from creating and maintaining this pool of individuals are reported.
