Information for People with Disabilities

Assistance from Staff

Staff at the HS/HSL are happy to provide additional services for the research and personal information needs of its patrons with disabilities. Information Services staff will assist you with searching databases and journals, using the catalog, locating and retrieving books and reference material, and utilizing the photocopiers, printers, and scanners.

Scheduling a consultation with a librarian is recommended before beginning in-depth research. This will ensure uninterrupted assistance.
