If you have a documented disability or temporary injury, you may receive home delivery of library materials. To apply for this option, please contact us to make arrangements. Please note that home delivery will take additional time, in some cases a week or longer.
Also, please note: you are responsible for the material from the point of its being mailed to you until we receive it back at our office, even if you do not receive the item. You are responsible for returning the item to us, in person, to any UConn Library, or via the mail at your own cost. You will be charged for materials that are lost or damaged in transit. If you choose to return by mail, we recommend that you insure the item or use a tracking service; also, be mindful of the due date and allow for time for the item to get back to us. You will be financially responsible for the item if we do not receive it back at our office.
Students with documented disabilities approved for alternate formats by the Center for Students with Disabilities may request digitization of books in the Homer Babbidge Library, as well as books received through Interlibrary Loan.
Materials will be scanned and made available to you within 5 business days of their arrival in our office. Requests for multiple items may take longer. If you have any questions about your requests or are unable to access them, please contact our office at firstname.lastname@example.org. If your software is unable to read the document, you may visit the Center for Students with Disabilities for technical assistance.
