Services
We have screened all pages on this site to the best of our ability to meet web accessibility standards and we continuously update them to improve compliance.

We can provide some training to staff and faculty who are interested in developing their skills and/or teach it to their students. Any training must be scheduled in advance through the library Disability Services Committee.

Policies
The Assistive Technology Workroom may be reserved ahead of time.

When the Workroom is not reserved, drop-in patrons are welcome on a first come, first served basis. See the Assistive Technology Room Calendar.

Patrons who have registered their accomodation needs with the Office of Student Affairs will take priority over other patrons.
