Disability Services - ASU Libraries

To ensure that all ASU students, faculty, and staff have access to our library’s resources and facilities, we offer a variety of services and assistive technology for users with disabilities. 


  • Orientation to the Libraries
  • Instruction on accessing and searching the Library Catalog and Online Databases
  • Book retrieval and assistance with photocopying/printing
  • Training on our assistive equipment and technology
  • Making print materials available in electronic format.

While members of the community with disabilities are welcome to do library research with our staff’s assistance, ASU affiliates will be given precedence.
