Library Accessibility

Western Libraries strives to provide a welcoming and comfortable environment for all library users to engage in research and scholarship. To enhance accessibility of our library locations for persons with disabilities, we offer several facilities and services.

Library Facilities

All library locations are accessible to persons in wheelchairs. See the campus accessibility map for detailed location information including the location of accessible parking and exterior automated door openers.

Wheelchair accessible elevators are available in all library locations with the exception of the Education Library. Please ask for assistance from staff at the Service Desk in this location.

Barrier free washrooms are accessible in The D.B. Weldon Library on the main, ground and second floors. Please note that patrons of the Archives and Research Collection Centre, which is attached to the Weldon Library, should make use of barrier free washroom facilities in Weldon. Wheelchair accessible washrooms are available at all other Western Libraries locations.

An exterior book drop is available outside the Education Library entrance. This book drop is open when the library is closed and is located outside the doors facing the rear north parking lot (facing Sarnia Road).
