Accessibility at the HSL

This guide provides information on accessibility accommodations for patrons of the HSL. Content will cover physical spaces, technology, and access to resources.

Accessibility Statement

The Health Sciences Library is committed to providing equal access to library collections, services, and facilities for all library users. Whenever possible, the Library selects and acquires resources and technologies that are compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act and section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act. If Library materials are not accessible, we provide reasonable accommodations and timely access to users with a verified need.

The Library has created this guide in compliance with the Final Report and Recommendations from the SUNY Electronic & Information Technology (EIT) Accessibility Committee (2019). The HSL is compliant with all required elements of these standards and most of the suggested components. This guide includes information on:

  • Accessible Technology
  • Library Spaces
  • Library Resources
  • Library Documentation

We consider these EIT standards to be a baseline, which we strive to build upon. Please let us know how the Library can better meet the needs of all our users.
