Make an online appointment with a librarian to discuss research assignments and identify relevant resources. You will share a screen to walk through the search process together.
Anyone may request books through the Library Catalog — search for the item and click the Request tab. In addition, Library staff will retrieve books and journals from the stacks for students registered with the UIC Disability Resource Center (DRC) or employees who have received an accommodation from the Office for Access and Equity (OAE).
Proxy check out
Patrons with disabilities can designate another person who has authority to check out books using their i-cards.
Scanning library materials

Faculty and staff with an accommodation from the Office for Access and Equity may request document conversion using the ILLiad interlibrary loan service.
