Library Accessibility Services
In conjunction with Accessibility Services, the Library offers a variety of services and equipment.
At Surrey, Richmond and Langley there is a computer for users who have a vision/perceptual disability. These computers provide the same software as other student computers but with the addition of:
- JAWS: voice activated screen reader software
- Zoomtext: screen magnification software
- Surrey, Richmond and Langley also have a print enlarger station.
The Equipment Desk has a variety of adaptive technology equipment available including laptops with JAWS and Zoomtext installed. Students should contact their Disability Advisor if they require use of this equipment.
Borrowing: KPU Library offers a third part authorization option, where students with accessibility concerns can complete the Third Party Release for Library Information and Transactions form and email it to firstname.lastname@example.org. This will allow the authorized third party to pick up books on your behalf.
Research: To utilize KPU Library’s accessible catalog search please go to the navigation at the tops of the screen and activate the person icon (the second icon from the right) in the library catalog.
