What accessibility services does the library offer?

Accessibility Services at the University of Toronto libraries offers students with disablities several services:

  • Texts in alternative formats: We can order Braille, large print, audio, or electronic versions of books and articles required for your course work.
  • Assistive technology: You can borrow laptops, document scanners, word processors, or CD playback machines from us.
  • Scanning: We can scan print materials for you when a digital copy is not available. Scans are processed for optical character recognition.
  • Renewals and extended loans: Sometimes it is possible for you to keep a book longer or renew it multiple times.
  • Proxy borrower authorization: You can designate someone to borrow and retrieve books on your behalf.
  • Bell Canada Relay Service: If you have a speech or hearing impairment, you can communicate with staff at the BCRS via TTY/Teletypewriter

If you have a disability, please register with the University of Toronto Accessibility Services so that you can access their services. For full details about Accessibility Services, please visit our website.
