Library Facilities

Library Access: Entrances

Entrances to all campus libraries are accessible for individuals using wheelchairs or scooters. Once in the library, some areas may not be fully accessible (eg. stacks may be too narrow, or shelving may be too high) but retrieval service by library staff is available.

Emergency Evacuation Procedures

Emergency evacuation procedures are in place in each library. In the case of an emergency, users with mobility devices or users who cannot navigate the stairs (as the elevators would not be operating) should proceed to an open or central area of the floor, where a staff member can find them and move them to a designated location.

Library Floor Plans

Floor plans for Mills and Thode can be found here. Accessible washrooms can be found in each library.

Floor plans for Innis can be found in the floor plans for Kenneth Taylor Hall (map).   Accessible washrooms near Innis Library can be found either in the basement of Kenneth Taylor Hall (map) or the main floor of Degroote School of Business (map).
