Assistive Technologies & Accessibility


Mission Statement:

The NSU Libraries are committed to providing services that can improve the accessibility to resources and materials and to aid students, staff, and faculty with individual needs. The Libraries work together with Student Affairs and the campus Student Disabilities Services Advisory Board to help improve access and assistance for people with disabilities in support of the academic mission of the University.
