UC Berkeley’s Office of Disability Access and Compliance, or DAC, Accessible Technology Lending Library  was opened this month as part of Disability Awareness Month and the 30th anniversary of the passage of the Americans with Disabilities Act, or ADA.

Faculty and staff with disabilities can access the library of products and software through UC Berkeley’s DAC website, according to a campus announcement Tuesday. The library is designed to support accommodations delivery and is available to departments across campus.

According to the announcement, UC Berkeley is “the home of the Disability Rights/Independent Living Movement,” adding that the passage of the ADA was significantly shaped by the work of campus professors and graduates.
