The Kennedy Library is committed to making both printed and digital content accessible to all patrons.
In collaboration with Information Technology Services (ITS) and the Disability Resource Center (DRC), the Library provides a wide range of tools, from screen-enlarging software to text-readers and more, which can enhance the accessibility of textual documents. Wherever possible, the Library produces accessible versions of electronic course reserves, and may be able to assist with other accommodations. Library users are encouraged to ask for assistance at any public service desk.
The Disability Resource Center can also provide on-demand conversions of Library resources to students who have registered with them. For more information, see the DRC web site.
- For an overview of the Library including accommodations for special access needs, users are encouraged to make an appointment with their college librarian to arrange a personal tour based on individual interests and needs.
- Reference Materials
- Permission to check out reference materials for short periods of time may be granted at the discretion of a librarian.
- Material Retrieval
- Library materials will be paged upon request for users with special needs. Requests for paging of items should be made at the Circulation Desk. Items will be retrieved based on staff availability and students will be notified when they should return for the materials. Materials paged after regular business hours (8 am to 5 pm) may not be available until the next business day.
