Alkek Library

Upon request, library staff are available to assist students with disabilities with book retrieval.  Limited assistance is also available with locating research materials.  Visit the Alkek Library Accessibility website for information on services and accessibility at the library for persons with disabilities.

Alkek Library Door Access

Any student, faculty, or staff member who is registered with ODS and has difficulty negotiating the stairs or ramp to access Alkek Library may request an access door card from the Administration Services office located in room 204 of the library.  Library staff may, if necessary, verify a student's eligibility for an access door card with the ODS.  The card will provide access to the first floor door located on the east side of the library by Derrick Hall.
