Academic Library Services for Users with Developmental Disabilities
Syracuse University Library and Access partnered to provide library orientations to six Syracuse University students who have developmental disabilities. Students with developmental disabilities are being included in college life more and more. As this occurs, academic libraries will be providing more services to this population. We hope Syracuse University's experience will be useful for other libraries to build on as they develop services. Additionally, we discuss opportunities to improve services for all students by focusing on students with developmental disabilities.
