Multi-Purpose Room Serves Users with Disabilities

LSU Libraries recently converted an existing space in Middleton Library to create the Consultation Room. Located in room 141, the Consultation Room offers a place for librarians to provide in-depth research support to students. Students can request one-on-one or group consultations with their subject librarians when they need assistance in selecting and refining research topics and in developing strategies for identifying, locating, and evaluating resources for research.

This multi-purpose space is also technology-enabled to support users with disabilities. The Consultation Room includes a wheelchair-accessible computer equipped with software and tools for users with visual disabilities. The workspace includes a CCTV enlarger for document magnification, a computer with software including JAWS for screen reading, MAGic for screen magnification, and Duxbury DBT for Braille translation, and a Braille printer.

The Consultation Room is open during the hours the Research Desk is staffed. This redesigned space supports LSU Libraries’ commitment to providing physical spaces for students to engage with information and create new knowledge.
