Welcome! This guide provides information on accessing and using the adaptive technology available in the Adaptive Technology Centre (ATC), Queen's University Library. The ATC is located on the main level of Stauffer Library, room 120 and contains an Adaptive Technology Lab with assistive devices, computer hardware, and specialized software that enable students to research, write and study more effectively.
To obtain access to the Adaptive Technology Lab, students must first be registered at the Queen's Student Accessibility Services (QSAS), Mitchell Hall, Union Street. The lab is for students registered with QSAS and their assistants.
The Adaptive Technologist is available to assess your adaptive technology (AT) needs, demonstrate how to use AT devices and software programs, advise on the purchase of AT products, and help customize your computer to better meet your needs.
The following is a list of the specialized software and assistive devices available in the Adaptive Technology Lab:
All computers are networked to the ATC public colour printer. Students can print or copy from any of the ATC Lab workstations using a current Queen’s student card with funds loaded online via the Papercut portal. Note that all workstations have the standard Library computer image.
You can print or copy at most of our locations using our PrintQ system from your own device or by using our Computers.
If you require assistance with the printer in the ATC Lab ask either the Adaptive Technology staff for assistance, or staff at the Information Services Desk will assist you. For more information about Queen's University Library printing, scanning and copying services, please visit this page.
