Building Accessibility

The Library is B-Building – consult the campus map to familiarize yourself with the campus layout and to view the accessible parking area. The Library has one entrance – the double-doors on the left side of our entrance are accessible.

Elevators

There is one elevator in the building, which can only be accessed from inside the building. After entering, the elevator can be found past the service desks on the first floor, and before the entrance to ʻUluʻulu.

Restrooms

The restrooms on both floors of the Library are accessible; they can be found on the komohana, or west, side of the building.

Special Software

The Library gives visually and/or hearing impaired patrons priority access to accessibility software on two Info Commons computer stations:

  • Info Commons 28 (first floor) has the software ZoomText, JAWS, Kurzweil 3000 as well as a large print keyboard and a high-speed document scanner.
  • Info Commons 44 (second floor) has the software ZoomText and JAWS and a large print keyboard

More information about the available software:

  • ZoomText is a screen magnifier software developed for visually impaired people that allows users to see and hear everything on the computer screen.
  • JAWS (Job Access With Speech) is a screen reader program that allows blind or visually impaired people to read the screen by using a text-to-speech output.
  • Kurzweil 3000 is a reading and writing software designed to assist people who are blind, partially sighted, or who have learning disabilities like dyslexia and attention deficit disorders.

*The Noʻeau Center also has access to a computer with the same ADA software in their testing room. Students can send an email to request a reservation or call (808) 689-2750.
