Accessibility

Strategies and resources to help Centennial faculty embed accessible practices into their teaching.

Accommodation Requests

We can help students with:

  • Retrieval of library materials
  • Operating printers and photocopiers
  • Accessing library spaces, services or collections
  • Using adaptive technology workstations

Please contact us if you require assistance!

Accessible Content E-Portal (ACE)

The Accessible Content E-Portal (ACE Portal) provides alternative formats for print books held by participating Ontario college libraries. 

The ACE service does not digitize textbooks.

Contact the Centre for Accessible Learning and Counselling Services if you require textbooks or other course materials in alternative formats.

If you have a perceptual disability, you can register for access to the ACE Portal.

Request access to ACE and a library staff member will contact you to provide a login token.

Closed Captioned Media

All library video viewing stations have a closed caption mode to play closed-captioned videos. To turn on captions, ask a library staff member to provide a remote. At each video viewing station, you will find instructions for enabling the closed caption mode.

The Library will provide, on request, a transcript or closed captioned version of DVDs held in our Library collection.

If you require a transcript or captioned version of an item in our collection please contact the library

You can search for captioned media in our collection using the library catalogue’s advanced search feature.

Perform a keyword search for “closed captioned” and limit the format to “audiovisual material”
