Please notify us if you have a disability and need special accommodations or assistance. The libraries will make every effort to facilitate the use of the resources available.
It is highly recommended that patrons who may require assistance in an emergency inform the circulation staff upon entering the library.
If you need help communicating or reading, please bring an assistant if extensive use of resources is anticipated.
Private Research Consultations
Currently registered E.P.C.C. students may make an appointment for a one-to-one library tour/orientation. Currently registered E.P.C.C. students may also schedule a one-on-one consultation with a librarian for assistance for in-depth research (more than 10 minutes). This is done by appointment. Please call the Reference Desk 915-831-2442.
Retrieval of Materials from the Stacks
If you find that library stacks or other areas are inaccessible, ask for assistance from the library staff. If immediate assistance cannot be provided, you may give the Circulation staff a list (in person or over the phone) of up to 5 titles (call numbers included) located at our library. The items will be retrieved within 24 hours and placed on the Circulation Desk hold shelf.
At the Valle Verde Library, patrons are responsible for bringing their own helper for photocopying assistance.
Currently registered students are also encouraged to visit the Assistive Technology Lab at the Center for Students with Disabilities.
