People are encouraged to ask for basic library instruction at the Instruction and Engagement Services department. If the department is not staffed, other library public service staff members will provide reference assistance to the best of their ability.
The staff of Access Services (Circulation/Reserve/Current Periodicals & Microforms) will assist students with disabilities by retrieving materials and photocopying materials as needed. Requests for assistance will be handled by staff within 15 - 30 minutes after a request has been submitted. However, if staffing at the desk is limited or the staff cannot assist the student at the time of a request, the student and the staff will mutually agree upon a time shortly afterwards when the student may best be assisted. Please note that staff will be best able to provide assistance 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Monday through Friday.
The Media Center has 20-inch TV/VCR monitors with closed captions, as well as other wheelchair-accessible A/V stations.

All collections are stored in closed stacks; materials are paged for use in the Special Collections reading area. Staff will assist users with disabilities as required and will provide copies of materials should a disabled user wish to read at an assistive device. Unaffiliated users will be asked to reimburse the costs of photocopying or scanning.
