Assistive Technologies in the ATC

Accessing the ATC

The ATC is available whenever the Hill Library is open, and no appointment is required.

The facility is kept locked for security reasons. Please ask staff at the entrance desk or the Ask Us desk for access.

Staff

Staff at the Ask Us center can provide general assistance in the use of ATC equipment and can help in selecting and using library resources.

Library users who do not know how to operate independently the assistive technology in the ATC (particularly first-time users) can call in advance to schedule an appointment with a staff member (919-515-3364) for an orientation to the ATC.
