ADA Accommodations

The LAVC Library is committed to providing all members of the LAVC community with equitable access to library information and services.

All publicly available computers have JAWS and ZoomText software. JAWS (Job Access With Speech) will read the text on a computer screen to a student. ZoomText allows students to magnify the text on computer screens and adjust other display features such as color.

We have four accessible computer stations with height adjustable tables:

  • Two in the public computer area — OPAC 1 (near the Reference Desk) and OPAC 15 (near the Reading Room)
  • One in each of our classrooms, LARC 100 and LARC 106

Accessing Library Resources

The Library has a large collection of electronic resources available and accessible in multiple formats.

If a patron cannot fully access any library resources, please contact the Library by email library@lavc.edu or by phone 818-947-2764 to schedule an appointment with a librarian. Please include the nature of the accessibility issue, the location of the material with which you are having difficulty, and your contact information so that we can deliver the material to you in an alternate, accessible format and/or make the necessary improvements to make the information accessible.

Please see the Equally Effective Alternate Access Plan (EEAAP) Guide for each of our electronic library databases.

For additional services and accommodations contact the Services for Students with Disabilities (SSD) office located in the Student Services Annex (SSA) — Room 175
