The Inclusive Technology Lab (ITL) is a Library space to experiment with assistive technology. It is a supportive environment designed to facilitate learning and research through access and training with assistive technologies.

  • Located in LIB 101, the ITL provides students with six assistive technology workstations, a distraction-reduced study space, and an accessible group study space.
  • Peer and professional support is available to provide orientations and instruction on how to make the most of the technology available. For more information, visit the ITL website.
  • Additionally, assistive technology can be borrowed from the Library Service Desk, located centrally on the first floor of the Library.

UBC Okanagan's Disability Resource Centre (DRC) works to eliminate structural and attitudinal barriers to those with disabilities.

  • The DRC provides disability-related services including information on physical access and accessible parking on campus as well as academic accommodations to students, staff and faculty with documented disabilities.
  • For more information on the DRC and to find out about access to Okanagan Library facilities and services, visit the DRC website.
