Ryerson University Library & Archives
The Ryerson University Library and Archives (RULA) is integral to learning, teaching, scholarly research and creative activities. RULA is committed to providing equal access to services and collections to the all members of the diverse Ryerson community by providing services that respect the dignity and independence of persons with disabilities. We provide access to course readings, research texts, and video in accessible formats. Additionally, a basic suite of adaptive software is available on the majority of the computers in the Library, and additional adaptive technology is available on select workstations and in private rooms on the third floor. When providing services, RULA staff members strive to communicate with Persons with disabilities in ways that take into account their disability and respect their individuality and rights.
This policy establishes guidelines for the academic accommodation of students with disabilities in order for them to access learning while maintaining the integrity of course content and objectives, and ensuring fairness for all students.
