Undoubtedly, one of the most important steps in becoming a fully accessible university is to ensure that our students have access to information. For this purpose, in 2016, institutional cooperation with the Boğaziçi University Visually Impaired Technology Laboratory (GETEM) was provided to enable visually impaired staff and students to benefit from library services in order to make it easier for students with visual disabilities to access the information. Publications in the library are mainly in Turkish and English. In the library, besides from story-novel-poetry, there are also lesson materials (books-articles-lesson notes) as well as scientific articles-books and recordings of lessons and conferences. GETEM has more than 15,000 stored publications.

Staff and students who want to use the service need to apply to the Library Management to receive a username and password. In order to benefit from all services, our disabled students should present reports regarding their disability to the Library Management. This requirement need only be met once.
