Accessing the ITL

How to Access the ITL

There are two ways to gain access to the Inclusive Technology Lab (ITL) and to be able to borrow ITL technology:

  1. Register with the Disability Resource Centre, located in UNC 214. Note: The DRC will only share  your name, student number and email address with the Library.
  2. OR, for research access, complete an ITL Faculty Authorization Form and submit a signed copy to the Library Service Desk.

Once registered or authorized, you will need to complete a brief in-person orientation. Student Learning & Technology Assistants provide 15-30 minute orientations. When the Library receives your registration from the Disability Resource Centre, we will contact you to schedule your orientation.
