University Disability Support Services (UDSS) provides Building Accessibility Guides for all campus buildings, which covers accessible entrances, accessible parking, elevators & lifts, and accessible restrooms.  Buildings that contain libraries:

If materials are too difficult to access, there are two options. The first is to ask at the library Help Desk for a staff member to accompany you to the stacks to obtain the books. The second is to use the Request It service to have the book pulled (aka "paged"). Materials will be pulled and ready for pickup within 36 hours, Monday through Friday.

If materials are too high to reach, you may request those titles through Request It and pick them up at that libraries' circulation desk.
