Reservable assistive technology room/carrel that may also serve as a study space The ATLab is available only to registered users and is not available all the time the library is open. Registered users have key card access to the ATLab. The ATLab, while located in the main library, is not administered by the library it is a part of the campus Accessibility and Disability Services. The computer labs that are in the larger libraries on campus have general public workstations that all include JAWS, MAgic, and Kurzweil 3000. There is one full-service private accessibility room that needs a key to access that has a suite of adaptive technology, hardware, and software available. Librarians are available to assist or train on the equipment in this room. There are five other libraries that have assistive or adaptive technology that you can check out with an ID and use in any one of the study rooms that are reservable for anyone on campus. There are a variety of other private and study and quiet rooms, but likely less than ten, that have a variety of different accommodations (examples: Zoom, height adjustable desks, more spacious desks, etc.) The extra software on these public computers is Read & Write Gold v11. The facility has a standard, public workstation available at a wheelchair accessible desk with Kurzweil software and hardware installed. A separate CCTV is available. The general public workstations are campus computer lab computers, which all have some assistive tech on them. The five spaces in the quiet room are in the library’s assistive technology center and feature either a PC or a desk with some kind of assistive tech at the desk. The five computers in the assistive tech room have much more assistive tech than the general public workstations. The general public workstations are on adjustable desks and have access to some accessibility software. The quiet rooms are in the libraries but hardware and software (and assistance) provided by SSD.
