EDI Library Guides: Disability & Accessibility Resources


Welcome to the UW-Stout disability and accessibility services centered library guide.

At UW-Stout, part of our commitment to equity, diversity, and inclusion includes supporting opportunities for self-directed learning and growth. This guide is designed to assist the UW-Stout community and beyond with their study and understanding of individuals with visible and invisible disabilities as well as the deep history of ableism and disability pride and activism within the United States and in international contexts.

This guide was created in collaboration of UW-Stout faculty, staff, and students. This group recognizes the guide is not exhaustive, and new and relevant material is being created and published daily and it is impossible to include everything. The global history of discrimination and oppression of individuals with disabilities spans centuries and continues to persist to this day. 

This guide includes items in the UW-Stout library catalog and links to credible outside resources to help you educate and challenge yourself. 

This compilation will evolve over time, just like we aim to and just like you can, to keep equity, diversity, and inclusion at the forefront here at UW-Stout and beyond.  We encourage recommendations to add to the guide. Recommendations should be emailed to As many terms that used to be acceptable referencing disability and accessibility services are now outdated or offensive, some of our resources may also become outdated. If you have a suggestion or a concern about a resource in this guide, please email and we will review your concerns.
