Library Services for Students with Disabilities: Technological Accommodations

This guide is designed to inform those with disabilities about library accommodations and services.

Hardware to Assist You

An ADA compliant work station with computer is available in the Library lobby.

An Optelec Clear View magnifier can be found in the carrels on the first floor. A hand held magnifier is also available at the Circulation Desk.

Jennings Library owns hundreds of closed-captioned videos and DVDs. To locate these titles, search the Library Catalog, CALCAT, under the subject “video recordings for the hearing impaired.”

The Library Catalog is available online through the Library’s homepage. We also offer access to online journals, databases, and other reference materials via the Library homepage. Access to these materials is with your Caldwell University NetID username and password.

Interlibrary loan of large print and audiobooks from other libraries is available.

A computer with attached scanner is located in the instruction lab on the third floor of the Library.

Photocopiers are located on the ground floor of the building. If you have difficulty reading small print, you can use the copiers to enlarge text.  Please ask a staff member if you need assistance using the machine. 


Academic Search Premier, the interdisciplinary journal index with full text, has an audio component which will read the article in an American, British or Australian accent. Note the "Listen" bar under the article title in the example below.
