Services for Library Users with Disabilities

Emory University Libraries seek to provide equal access to library services and collections for all library users. If you need special assistance, please ask for assistance at the library Information Desk. Some services may require advance notice to ensure staff availability. Emory Libraries work in conjunction with The Office of Accessibility Services to accommodate reasonable requests for assistance in obtaining, accessing and making use of library resources, materials and services. For specific accommodations, please call our Information Desk at (404) 727 -8727 or email MEDREF@LISTSERV.CC.EMORY.EDU.

Retrieval service: Users with disabilities may request assistance in retrieving materials from the stacks at the library Information Desk. Depending on staffing levels, this service may not be immediately available. Retrieved material will be held at the Information desk for the user. We recommend contacting the Information Desk in advance for assistance in retrieving materials by calling (404) 727 -8727 or emailing MEDREF@LISTSERV.CC.EMORY.EDU.

Proxy Privileges: A proxy acts on another person's behalf regarding library materials. Only Emory faculty, teaching graduate students, and persons with disabilities are eligible to register proxies. Proxies cannot access your Emory Personal ID or password or contact information. Proxy privileges end August 31 of each year. To submit a proxy request, please contact the Information Desk at (404) 727 -8727 or email MEDREF@LISTSERV.CC.EMORY.EDU. Please supply the name and employee ID number of the user who needs a proxy and the name and student ID number of the person who will be the proxy. To setup up a proxy Interlibrary Loan account, please contact the ILL department.

Adjustable height tables: Visitor computer terminals are housed on an adjustable height table on the library’s plaza level. If you need assistance with the table, please ask at the Information Desk.

Visiting the Library: Please refer to Visiting the Library for information about parking and walking to the library.
