Students with Disabilities

Staff Assistance

The Syracuse University College of Law Library strives to meet the needs of all students, including those with disabilities.  If you require assistance using Library materials, equipment or services, please let us know.

Stacks and Elevator

If an item that you are interested in seeing is located on a shelf that is not within your reach, or if you are having trouble maneuvering through the stacks, a member of our Circulation staff, or a Reference Librarian, will be happy to retrieve the item for you: just let us know.

The Law Library elevator is located near the Circulation Desk (around the corner on the red glass wall.)  For the benefit of patrons with visual impairments, our elevator controls are equipped with Braille lettering, and there is a sign on each door jamb identifying the floor.  For further directions and/or assistance, please ask at the Circulation or Reference Desks.

Study Rooms

There are 8 small study rooms in the Law Library.  If you need a space to work with a reader or a learning aid, please come to the Circulation Desk to reserve a room.  Our group study rooms are extremely popular with students, so please be sure to plan ahead whenever possible.  Please note that additional study rooms are available outside of the Law Library.  For the locations of these rooms, please see the list on our Location Guide, or ask at the Circulation or Reference Desks

Adaptive Technology

The Law Library has CCTV capabilities for viewing videos with closed captions and a magnifying machine for those with visual impairments 

Restrooms

ADA compliant restrooms are located on both floors of the Law Library.  Please see a floor map, or ask a staff member for the exact locations.

Parking

There are disabled parking spaces available for law students.  You must contact the University’s Office of  Parking & Transit Services for a permit to use these spaces.
