Accessibility: Services and Spaces

Accessibility Services

While the library strives to be a universally accessible experience for all users, we recognize that there are barriers and acknowledge that alternative arrangements may be required for some users.

The Library Accessibility Office can help you with accessing our collections or discovering what assistive technologies and alternate format services are available. Contact us at the Library Accessibility Office to discuss how we can best support you.
