About the Library

UW-Parkside Library Accessibility

The University of Wisconsin-Parkside Library provides a number of services or accommodations aimed at equalizing access to library resources for students, faculty and staff with disabilities. All staff working in public service areas of the library will make every effort to accommodate reasonable requests from users with disabilities. The type and nature of the special assistance is usually determined by the request. While most special assistance can be given at the time of request, it is a good idea to make an appointment for non-routine accommodations. To make an appointment for special assistance, phone the library front desk (262) 595-3432 or email
