Services for Users with Disabilities
Extended reference assistance: Users are encouraged to make an appointment with a reference librarian or the Coordinator of Library Services for Users with Disabilities and Assistive Technology for extended reference assistance.
Users who have a great number of requests should contact the library in advance.
Exceptions to circulation policies: To request exceptions to circulation policies to accommodate access needs, talk to library staff of the library which has the needed material. Exceptions may include, but are not limited to, extended loan periods and lending items which do not normally circulate.
Inter-Library Service (ILS): UT students, faculty and staff are eligible to borrow and/or acquire copies of some items from other libraries through Inter-Library Service (ILS). Extended loan periods for these items are granted at the discretion of the ILS Librarian and the lending library. Requests for extended loan periods should be made directly to ILS staff, PCL 1.343, 495-4283.
Fines, fees and replacement costs: All users are responsible for fines, fees and replacement costs for overdue, lost or damaged materials. Staff in each library in charge of fine resolution may choose to reduce or dismiss fines demonstrated to have been accrued as a direct result of a disability.
Accommodations may include, but are not limited to, sign language interpreters, scheduling classrooms in the most physically accessible rooms, and one-on-one instruction using assistive technology.
