Library Accessibility Services
For students with an accommodation, Library Accessibility Services provides support through alternate format textbooks, library materials, custom courseware, lecture material, class readings, video captioning, audio transcripts and Echo 360 lecture capture captions. Did you know that AODA requires all videos be captioned? Learn more about our captioning service.
We are very excited to announce a new electronic reserves service that will provide your students with seamless access to course readings. Library staff will scan your course readings, ensure copyright compliance and provide durable links to library materials all from a single access point in your A2L course shell. Print reserves are also available at Mills and Thode.
Ask a Librarian
Ask a Librarian is a collaborative virtual reference service, offered in English and French, that connects students, faculty members, and researchers from participating university libraries across Ontario with real-time library and research assistance through chat.
We are borrowing or loaning physical items and will continue for scans of chapters or journal articles.
