Assistive Technology
An assistive technology station, located in one of the library’s individual study rooms, is equipped with a large monitor and specialized software. The software includes ZoomText for screen magnification and screen reading. The text-to-speech software, Kurzweil, is also available for use. Additionally, the library has a black and white video magnifier in the library that allows individuals to enlarge printed text for easier reading. Additional controls allow for zooming, modifying contrast, and focusing.

Individualized Research Help
Whether you need to start at the basics (like finding a book in the library) or need more advanced help (like finding scholarly articles), you can schedule an individual Research Appointment with one of our librarians. Appointments can be tailored to your needs and your class schedule, so you get one-on-one training that is right for you. Generally, individual appointments are only available Monday through Friday before 5pm, but you can call us at 513.785.3235 or fill out an appointment request form on our online Research Request page.

Special Assistance
You can call us at 513.785.3235 if you need help checking your library due dates, renewing books, or using the library’s website. If you need additional help when dropping off or picking up library items, please let us know how we can best serve you. We want you to get a lot of use out of the library while you are here at Miami University Hamilton!
