Services for Library Users with Disabilities

Emory University Libraries seek to provide equal access to library services and collections for all library users. We work in conjunction with Access, Disability Services, and Resources to accommodate reasonable requests for assistance in obtaining, accessing and making use of library resources, materials and services.

If you need special assistance, please contact the Library Service Desk.

Some services require advance notice to ensure staff availability. For specific accommodations, please call the Library Service Desk at (404)-727-6873 or email


Retrieval Service

Users with disabilities may request assistance in retrieving materials from the stacks at the Library Service Desk. Retrieved material will be held at the Library Service Desk for the user.

Depending on staffing levels, this service may not be immediately available. We recommend contacting the Library Service Desk in advance for assistance in retrieving materials by calling (404)-727-6873 or emailing

Adjustable Height Tables

Adjustable height tables are located in the Learning Commons next to the Library Service Desk on Level 2.

If you need assistance with the table, please ask at the Library Service Desk.
