Library services for people with disabilities

Library staff can assist people with disabilities to more easily access library resources and services.

We typically provide assistance with:

  • Checking the availability of material and retrieving it from library shelves.
  • Borrowing and renewing material.
  • Placing requests for material.

To make the most of library services, we recommend that you:

  • Contact us prior to your visit to discuss any assistance you may require.
  • Consider setting up someone as a proxy patron to borrow or renew items on your behalf at library helpdesks.

The University's Disability Services site provides information on other assistance that may be available to you, including a list of designated study spaces and resource rooms on University campuses.
