Additional Accomodations

Research Help
The Library provides assistance in using resources, locating and retrieving Library materials from inaccessible shelves, and other accomodations. Accomodations may vary depending on the Library location. Please contact the Library if you have special or unique accomodations.

Library Workshops
Workshops, training, and instruction rely heavily on visuals or sound. Instruction sessions can be tape-recorded so the volume can be increased for later reference. Handouts can be enlarged, or electronic copies can be provided. Please contact Mary Jo Lyons at 817-272-7520 to request arrangements.
