Use Of The Adaptive Technology Pod

The University Libraries endeavor to provide assistance and instruction, which lead users to independent research, regardless of their ability.

The Adaptive Technology Pod is an enhanced computer space designed to provide specialized software and hardware resources to patrons with disabilities. All 5 workstations include a one-touch fully powered adjustable height desks.

The pod is not to be used as a general meeting or study space or by library users who do not need assistive technology.

Although every effort will be made to assist users with reasonable requests to obtain needed information, staff limitations make extensive individual assistance impossible. Any assistance requiring more than 10 minutes of a staff member's time (in any department) will require an appointment.
