Assistive Technologies & Services

The SU Libraries are proud to offer multiple technologies and services that make the Libraries accessible to those with disabilities.

The Guerrieri Academic Commons has been designed with accessibility in mind. All areas of the building are accessible to patrons with limited mobility, and all of the building’s entrances have ramps for wheelchair access. If you find that any areas of the building are not as accessible as they should be, please speak to a staff member at the Library Service Desk to let us know and to get assistance.

For those with visual impairments, we offer a number of services to allow you to use our resources. A Nemo, a pocket-sized digital magnifier, can be checked out for 3 hours from the Library Service Desk (it must remain in the building).

In addition, students, faculty, and staff can register with the Disability Resource Center to get access to our Accessibility Room. This room (AC 115) is located in the 24-hour space of the GAC, so it is accessible at all hours during the fall and spring semesters. The room provides a quiet place to study, as well as computers with JAWS, Kurzweil Reader, and ZoomText software. For more information about the software available or for assistance using it, please contact the DRC.

Access to the Accessibility Room is controlled by card swipe, so please be sure to register with the DRC before visiting the library.
