Opportunity for Library Users With Disabilities

Do you sometimes get frustrated using any of the university library resources?

Do you have at least one of the following disabilities: blindness/low vision, deaf/hearing impairment, Autism, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), or have a mobility impairment?

Are you an undergraduate student, graduate student, or a faculty or staff member?

Have your voice heard!

Fill out the availability survey to potentially participate in a focus group about that will ask about your experiences in the library as a patron with a disability.


This research will help the University Library better understand your unique needs and allow us to make changes to better serve you. Focus groups will last for 90 minutes, take place in a Main Library Meeting Room (to be determined), and will be audio and video recorded. At the end of the focus group session, you will be given one $20 gift card to compensate you for your time.

Your identity will be anonymized in any publishable or professional materials that are developed from this research.

If you have any questions, please contact the principal investigator, JJ Pionke, at pionke@illinois.edu or 217-265-0002.
