Databases with Read-Aloud Support

(available on the Libraries' Database by Title page)

Many of the Libraries' subscription databases contain a Read-Aloud option. After opening an article, look for the listen icon icon, usually located under the title of the article or in the right hand column. Click on the icon to have the article read to you.  When using this option in the library, please use headphones or ear buds. The Hultquist Library has ear buds for sale at the Circulation Desk.

Accessibility Services

The Accessibility Services office is dedicated to assisting qualified students with disabilities in earning grades that reflect their abilities and not their disabilities. Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the Americans with Disabilities Act proclaim qualified students with disabilities be allowed full participation in the same programs, services and activities available to non-disabled students. It is the college’s responsibility to provide reasonable accommodations for this to happen.
