Expansion of the Adaptive Technology Lab is Underway

As visitors to the Michael Schwartz Library may have noticed lately, construction to expand the Adaptive Technology Lab on the first floor is well underway. Upon completion at the end of the month, the expanded lab will contain a wide variety of new hardware as well as facility improvements that will serve both students with disabilities and classes for demonstrations.

The new main lab will have four workstations and be large enough to accommodate Occupational Therapy lab classes. The current lab in RT103 will be repurposed as a quiet study room and dictation area and will house three workstations. The area north of that area will be converted into a room that will store assistive technologies and two Braille embossers.

Students needing to use the lab and the equipment during the construction should contact Jeff Dell, Assistive Technology Specialist, Disability Services at (216) 687-2141.
