International Day of Persons with Disabilities is an annual observance held on December 3. As such, we are highlighting the variety of support the library offers students who are registered with Student Accessibility Services (SAS) at U of G. 

Library Accessibility Services (LAS) provides adaptive technology access and instruction, accessible study space, and other services designed to help with reading, writing, note-taking, and studying. All services and supports provided by LAS can be found on the LAS webpage.

Students registered with SAS can book an appointment for: 

  • An overview of Library Accessibility Services. 

  • Support with alternative-format text and multimedia, such as:

    • Having course textbooks and readings made available in formats like digitized text, audio books, Braille, and tactile images.

    • Having captions, transcripts, and audio descriptions made available for course-based audio-visual materials. 

  • Training in the use of access technology, software, mobile apps that support reading, writing, note-taking, and studying. 

If you’re a student registered with Student Accessibility Services, book an appointment to learn how Library Accessibility Services can support your learning at U of G. Learn more about how the library supports accessibility for all users with disabilities.

Learn about how U of G is celebrating the contributions of persons with disabilities, resources available to support persons with disabilities, and how together we can create a more inclusive U of G. 

The library is committed to ensuring that members of our user community with disabilities have equal access to our services and resources and that their dignity and independence is always respected. If you encounter a barrier and/or need an alternate format, please fill out our Library Print and Multimedia Alternate-Format Request Form. Contact us if you’d like to provide feedback:
