Library services for students with special needs

Due to technical challenges specific to Canadore College with the Omni migration, beginning December 13, Canadore library users will experience difficulty accessing services linked with library accounts, primarily renewals and library holds.

We are working with Canadore College to resolve the issue. We anticipate access to library resources and services for Canadore library users will be in operation by January, 2020. We apologize for the inconvenience and thank you for understanding. For further information, contact: Ed Driedger (705-474-3450 x 4545 or

Seven enclosed Adaptive Technology rooms are located on the third floor of the Harris Learning Library, and are reserved for students with special needs. These rooms provide a distraction-reduced study environment, and five of these rooms are equipped with computers with adaptive technology to support students with perceptual or learning disabilities. Please contact the Circulation Desk to reserve study time. Students wishing to use these rooms must first register with AccessAbility Services (Canadore College) or Student Accessibility Services (Nipissing University).

Nipissing University students who would like more information regarding Accessibility Services can phone 705-474-3450, extension 4362, or go to Nipissing's Student Accessibility Services website.

Canadore College students who would like more information regarding AccessAbility Services can phone 705-474-7600, extension 5205, or go to Student Success Services website.

Please do not hesitate to ask the Library staff if you need any help.
