The East Los Angeles College Libraries, at the Monterey Park and South Gate Campuses, are committed to providing services to students with disabilities. Accommodations may vary based upon the type of disability involved.

Research Assistance

  • Librarians are on duty at the Research Help Desk during all library hours and will provide research assistance to locate and demonstrate the use of library resources to students with disabilities.

Library Workshops and Orientations

  • An ADA compliant computer station is available in the library classroom where library workshops and orientations are conducted. Reasonable accommodations will be provided for students with disabilities who attend these instructional sessions and request accommodations in advance through DSP&S or the Library.


  • While photocopiers are self-service, one photocopier with wheelchair access is available at the Monterey Park Campus library. If students with disabilities require assistance, they can request help from library staff at the Circulation Desk.
  • If library staff cannot provide immediate assistance, students with disabilities can leave their requests and return later to retrieve copied materials. The photocopy charge is 10 cents per page and students are responsible for paying copier charges in advance.
  • For copyright law, refer to the "Copyright Restrictions" flier posted near the photocopiers.

Retrieving Materials

  • If needed, library staff will retrieve materials for students with disabilities from the book shelves. If library staff cannot provide immediate assistance, students can leave their requests at the Circulation Desk and return later to retrieve materials.
