The Franklin University Library recognizes the needs of students with disabilities and is committed to providing accessible services, programs, and educational opportunities.
In addition to accessible facilities and plentiful disability parking in the lot adjacent to Phillips Hall, the library offers these accessibility services:
One ADA station for our customers with visual disability (computer terminal one);
SMR 7 has a JAWS screen reader which provides speech and Braille output for the most popular computer applications;
We have one standard magnifier available for our customers to check out;
There is a Blind Square Beacon installed in Phillips Hall which can be used with the Blind Square app;
Handicap accessible doors;
Our SMRs can be reserved by individuals with a learning disability. If our customers request quiet area to study because of concentration problems, they are more than welcome to use one of our SMR rooms. THEY DO NOT NEED ANOTHER GROUP MEMBER;
Our reference librarians are always here for on one- on- one research questions from all our students.
