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 with disabilities 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 Office, Mitchell Hall, Union Street. The lab is for the exclusive use of students with disabilities 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 Stauffer Library ATC Public Colour Printer located within the Adaptive Technology Lab. Students can print, scan, and copy at any of the Library locations from either their own device or by using one of the ATC Lab workstations. Those who have a current Queen's student or staff card you will be loading funds using the Tri-ColourCash method. Scanning to a USB key is free for current students and staff members. 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.
