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 the relevant library or information commons 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 lending desks.

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.
