Columbia University is committed to ensuring that the services and programs offered by the Libraries and CUIT are accessible to all patrons. The University works with patrons on an individual basis to assess their unique accommodation needs. If you have any questions, please contact the Access Services Division liaison, Mayra Alvarez, at (212) 854-3536 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Orientations to the traditional and electronic information services available at any of Columbia University’s libraries can be arranged.
Assistance can be provided with CLIO, Columbia’s Online Catalog. When needed, assistance is also available with the remaining paper card catalogs. Please contact the Access Services Division liaison or ask for assistance at the Reference Desk in Butler Library.
Patrons with mobility-related disabilities may designate a Deputy Borrower and/or renew library books via telephone. Please contact the Access Services Division liaison to register for these services.
Patrons who are unable to access the bookstacks may request that circulating materials housed in the stacks be retrieved and brought to a library location of their choice. Please allow 1-2 business days and provide the full bibliographic citation to the Access Services Division liaison.
Patrons wishing to request a locker in Butler Library for disability-related reasons must first register with and provide medical documentation supporting their request to the Office of Disability Services.
