People with disabilities in the library may ask:
Depending on staffing, and the volume and timing of requests, immediate photocopying or microfiche/microfilm printing or scanning may not be possible. Patrons with disabilities may be asked to leave their retrieved materials for copying by staff at a later time if staff are unable to devote extended attention to their needs at the time. The patron is required to supply a CD-R disc (not CD-RW), or a USB flash drive for scanning.
Patrons with disabilities who wish Library staff to retrieve or copy materials for them should:
*Electronic requests, which are sent to the library's email accounts, may not be checked on weekends or evenings.
Library staff process requests as quickly as possible. However, due to staffing constraints, limits on how many requests can be processed per person within a specified time period. If the patron anticipates a large volume of items needing to be photocopied, contact Circulation staff either in person or at 715/232-1215 to discuss lead time and what is feasible.
Payment for photocopying the requested items is expected at the time of the request. Payment may be in cash, by check, or by using either a UW-Stout student ID card or Visitor card containing Flexline or Baseline Plus funds. The patron will be reimbursed if not all of the requests can be filled. Photocopying or scanning charges:
- 1-10 pages $1.00
- 11-20 pages $2.00
- 21-30 pages $3.00
- 31-40 pages $4.00
- 41-49 pages $5.00
- For more than 50 pages, contact the Circulation Supervisor to discuss the option of special or extended loan.
Articles That Are Unavailable
Patrons are expected to verify that the University Library owns each item that they are requesting to be photocopied or scanned prior to submitting the requests.
If Library staff determine that the library owns the journal title but not the article that has been requested, photocopy charges for that item will be refunded to the patron's account.
If it appears that a patron with disabilities is systematically submitting Paging/Copy Request forms for items that the Library does not own, Library staff will refer the patron to the Assistive Technology Librarian or other Reference staff for the appropriate instruction. If this type of request continues to be submitted, there will a $1.00 charge for each item that is requested that the library does not own. The remainder of the photocopy fee, if there is a remainder, for that item will be refunded to the patron's account.
