Accessibility in the Library

The library is located in the center of the Mt. Scopus campus, between the Faculties of Humanities and Social Sciences. The entrance to the library, and all reading rooms are accessible to users with disabilities. The alarm system at the library's entrance and the elevators are wheelchair friendly, and there are designated restrooms for wheelchair access on the 2nd and 3rd floors.

The study spaces have been planned to allow for sufficient unobstructed access for wheelchairs and walkers. Glass doors are marked. Two adaptive technology workstations with electrically controlled desk height are equipped with software and a variety of ergonomic devices for people with motor impairments.  A special software package received through the Hebrew University Computer Authority, includes screen reading and enlargement programs, as well as instructional software helpful to users with dyslexia and other learning difficulties. Ten percent of the library’s public workstations have 22" widescreen monitors helpful to visually impaired patrons. Students with service dogs are welcome. Special guidance aiming to ensure equal access to students with disabilities is provided by the Reference Department.

Disabled Access to the Library is noted on the Campus Map
