Reference librarians and reference graduate assistants take primary responsibility for assisting patrons with disabilities. Services include help with using the Library Catalog, databases, Internet, microforms, and other library resources.
As time and staffing allow, reference librarians will retrieve or photocopy one or two items immediately for patrons with disabilities. However, patrons with disabilities are advised to make arrangements with a librarian or personal assistant ahead of time for extended service. Suppose a librarian or graduate assistant is not available, such as when the Reference Desk is closed. In that case, Circulation staff may be of assistance to answer basic questions or retrieve one or two items as time allows.
