Accessibility and Accommodation in the Library: Accessible Spaces

Accessible Spaces in the Library

The library wants to create a physical environment that meets the unique needs of all patrons. In collaboration with the Office of Disability Services, the library has implemented physical spaces that help ensure patrons have access to library resources. See more information about these spaces below. 

Accessible Workstations

The library has two wheelchair accessible workstations located on the 1st floor. These workstations have open availability, and they are available on a first come, first serve basis. Both workstations are marked with a blue disability placard.

Assistive Technology Lab

The Office of Disability Services' Assistive Technology Lab is located on the 3rd floor of the library. This room is only available to students that have a disability services card. To access the room, stop by the Access Services Desk, located on the 2nd floor of the library, and let them know you would like to use the Assistive Technology Lab. The Access Services staff will ask to see your disability services card.
