Accessibility

The building is wheelchair-accessible. An outside elevator (located in the pavilion entrance to the Thain Family Cafe and the Bass Library) will take the reader directly to the Bass Library.

To get to the Sterling Memorial Library from the Bass Library, readers with wheelchairs should take the elevator one level up to the tunnel connecting Bass Library and Sterling Memorial Library. Once through the tunnel, in the Wright Reading Room, turn left to the elevator and proceed up to the main level and the Sterling Memorial Library nave.

Classrooms are available on a scheduled basis for persons with reading assistants. All individual study rooms are wheelchair-accessible and sound-proof for persons requiring space to work with reading assistants, play audiotapes, take oral examinations, etc.
