OCAD University (Dorothy H. Hoover) Library is committed to providing equal access to services and collections for all students, faculty and staff at the university. We endeavour to create a fully accessible learning environment for the whole OCADU community.
Where self-use of library facilities and/or services is difficult or impossible, the Library will make special provisions, to permit users with disabilities to:
- access library resources in their preferred format*
- examine sources
- retrieve materials
- access library services
*Registration for the alternate formats service is required. Students register through the Centre for Students with Disabilities and staff/faculty register through Human Resources). The Library is a member of the Ontario Council of University Libraries (OCUL), which has created a repository of accessible materials available to OCAD U students, staff, and faculty through the alternate formats service as well.
Accessible Teaching and Learning Resources
The library has created an Accessible Teaching and Learning Resources guide with links to resources of accessibility standards and practices that faculty can use when selecting and/or creating course materials. The Snow: Education, Access and You also provides information on creating an accessible teaching and learning experience in the classroom.
