Library services for people with disability

The University of Canberra Library (UC Library) aims to provide a range of high quality scholarly information resources and services to the University community. The Library recognises the importance of our clients, both staff and students. We endeavour to deliver services that recognise the diversity and needs of all client groups to ensure services are provided on an equitable basis.

Our commitments are guided by the Disability Standards for Education 2005 - the standards clarify the obligations of education and training providers, and seek to ensure that students with disability can access and participate in education on the same basis as students without disability.
