The University Library provides assistance and adaptive technology to provide patrons with various disabilities access to the library and its resources.
For special services, please meet with UW-Stout Disability Services staff to determine appropriate accommodations. (120 Robert S. Swanson Library and Learning Center 715-232-2995).
Depending on staffing, and the volume and timing of requests, immediate printing or scanning may not be possible. Patrons with disabilities may be asked to leave their retrieved materials for scanning by staff a later time if staff ar unable to devote extended attention to their needs at the time. The patron is required to supply a CD-R disc (not CD-RW), or use a USB flash drive for scanning.
Library staff process requests as quickly as possible. However, due to staffing constraints, limits on how many requests can be processed per person within a specified time period. If the patron anticipates a large volume of items needing to be scanned, contact Circulation staff either in person or at 715-232-1215 to discuss lead time and what is feasible.
Patrons are expected to verify that the University Library owns each item that they are requesting to be scanned prior to submitting requests.
If it appears that a patron with disabilities is systematically submitting Paging/Scanning Request forms for items that the Library does not own, Library staff will refer the patron to Reference staff for the appropriate instruction. If this type of request continues to be submitted, there will be a $1.00 charge for each item that is requested that the library does not own. The remainder of the fee, if there is a remainder, for that item will be refunded to the patron's account.
