Accessibility Statement

RPCC Library Services is in the process of reviewing our website and online documents for accessibility and usability using various tools including WebAIM’s WAVE Web Accessibility Evaluation Tool and other resources. WAVE evaluates sites using checklists for WCAG 2.0 and Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act.

ADA services in the RPCC Library include a computer equipped with a large-screen monitor, large format keyboard, and accessibility applications such as Jaws screen reader and document magnifier.

If you find any aspect of the RPCC Library Services website not in compliance, please contact Library@rpcc.edu and we will address the issue wherever possible.
