Atkins Library is committed to providing an accessible and inclusive experience for all users of the library. We offer a variety of support to facilitate physical and virtual access to library services, collections, and spaces. Staff working at public service points will make every effort to accommodate accessibility requests.
To further this commitment, the Library's Accessibility Committee has implemented a Multi-Year Plan to guide accessibility work for the years 2022-2025. This plan will be revisited and revised as needed on an annual basis.
