If you require library assistance on an irregular basis and it involves physical assistance then speak with library staff. If library assistance is required on a regular basis it is recommended that students register with the Disability Support Service and be referred to the Adaptive Technology Centre to discuss ongoing support.
Ongoing library assistance in the Auchmuty Library is provided through the Adaptive Technology Centre by Centre staff where appropriate. For ongoing assistance students must be registered with the Disability Support Service.
