More Information


The Americans with Disabilities Act provides civil rights protection to people with disabilities. These rights include equal access to employment, public services, transportation and telecommunications. For information on how UCLA complies with these policies, consult the UCLA ADA/504 Compliance Office(opens in a new tab).

All staff working in public service areas of campus libraries will make every effort to accommodate requests from users with disabilities. For more information on resources available to users with disabilities, please contact us at in a new tab).

Locating Materials

Staff will assist users with disabilities in accessing any equipment or resource that is inaccessible. Please speak with circulation desk staff if you need assistance.

Retrieving Materials

Library staff can help users with disabilities access library stacks. The number of items we can retrieve per day may be limited due to staffing or workload considerations. When materials cannot be paged immediately, staff will arrange to have the material ready the next work day.

Special carts in the Biomedical, Music, Research and Science and Engineering libraries are available to assist in retrieving and transporting materials. Please ask for a cart at the circulation desks in these libraries.

Proxy Borrower Card

Users may designate an individual to borrow books in their name for no additional charge. That individual will be issued a proxy borrower card. Please ask staff at either the Biomedical, Powell or Young Research Libraries for more information.

Photocopying Materials

Staff can make photocopies of materials for users with disabilities. Please bring the materials to be copied to any circulation desk, along with a BruinCard that has enough money to pay for the copies. We do not accept cash. When staff are not available to make copies, you can leave the material and your BruinCard and pick up your copies the next work day. All copying must be in compliance with U.S. copyright law.
