Accessibility Services

Title II of the Americans with Disabilities Act (1990) requires that library programs and services be accessible to people who have disabilities. Dupré Library complies with these requirements by providing curb ramps, accessible parking, exterior elevator, modified entrances, adaptive technology for the visually impaired, signs enhanced with Braille, special seating areas, and other compatible resources. Personnel services are also provided to those who are otherwise unable; these include item retrieval, copying, verbal assistance, emergency rescue procedures, and more.

Equipment for the visually impaired is located on the first floor adjacent to the STEP Computer lab. To enhance accessibility of Internet resources, the Library's web site employs the guidelines provided by the university's Web Style Guide (http://web.louisiana.edu/toolbox/web-style-guide/accessibility). More information on access guidelines is on the library's Information Technology and Web Services Policy page.  Additional services on campus are provided by the Office of Disability Services (http://disability.louisiana.edu/).
