Accessibility in the Libraries

The University's policy and federal law call for reasonable accommodations to be made on an individual and flexible basis for patrons with disabilities. It is, however, incumbent upon the individual to seek assistance and make his/her needs known.

Accessing the Libraries

Parking

The nearest handicap parking is located in K Lot (see campus map).

Elevator

All three floors of the Libraries are accessible by elevator. See the Libraries' floorplans for elevator location.

Service Dogs

The Harrison Libraries comply with all State and Federal laws regarding service dogs.

Technology

The Libraries' computer labs are wheelchair accessible. One library computer is equipped with JAWS, a screen reader for users with visual impairments.

We Can Help!

On request, library staff will retrieve materials from the stacks for patrons with disabilities.

Scanning and/or photocopying will be done on request for patrons with disabilities, with a 24-hour (or next open day) turn-around time. The patron will be responsible for copying costs.
