The Jeremy Richard Library has accessible workstations for the Library's electronic services. Please inform us of any concerns you might have with the library accessibility or if you are looking for additional accommodations.
Requests for retrieval of library materials held at other libraries are made through the Document Delivery/Interlibrary Loan by University of Connecticut students, faculty and staff.
In the case of an emergency, library staff will assist patrons with disabilities out of the front or back exits of the Library. Patrons on the 2nd floor will need to go to the landing inside the nearest fire exit stairwell (outside the Schreiber Reading Room). Staff will notify emergency services personnel (police, firemen, EMS) of their location. They will remove the person from the building.
