Inclusive Services

The Library promotes inclusive services by fostering access to spaces and holdings.  

To support the study and research activities of students with disabilities, the Library subscribes to platforms providing inclusive reading experience which are also accessible off-campus, and facilitates access to on-site resources through PC stations equipped with programs for text decoding and speech synthesis.
