The Assistive Technology Room - Perkins room 127 - is reserved for the use of Duke students, faculty and staff. The room also doubles as the Duke librarian's research consultation room. To gain access to the room, we request that users allow the library to flag your library account. This is the same account that lets Access Services check out books to you. Your library record is kept strictly private and the flag on your record may be removed by request, by emailing Ciara Healy at ciara.healy at duke.edu.
The reason that access to the Assistive Technology room is restricted to those who need it is primarily because of the software available. The Assistive Technology room is the one place on campus where the assistive software is available and we would like to have it ready and in good working order for those who need it, when they need it. For instance, researchers using Dragon Naturally Speaking may turn up their volume and speak aloud in the room without disturbing other library patrons. Another study room has been made available for general student use, so no loss of study space has occured.
To use the Assistive Technology Room, please fill out the request form.
Once you have requested access via the form, you may at check out the key to room 127 from the Perkins access services desk.
