The University of Texas Libraries is committed to providing access to our collections and services in compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act. Our goal is to provide, whenever possible, arrangements that enable library users with disabilities to work independently. Please share your feedback about making the Libraries more accessible.
In addition to physical spaces, we are determined to provide accessible digital materials. This includes regularly scheduled scanning/adjustment of all UT Libraries website pages for accessibility and other access concerns.
