This guide will assist you with finding library and community resources. The library hours are posted for your convenience. Note that we have the RIT ASL and Deaf Studies Community Center (RADSCC) and the Writing Commons (with sign fluent tutors) on the first floor. Workshops and ASL tutoring are offered at the RADSCC. JavaWally's is located off the lobby and is a place where you can relax, meet friends, study, and use your laptop and drink coffee or tea.
If you have questions, feel free to contact me, Joan Naturale - I am the NTID and Deaf Studies Librarian and happy to help. If I am unavailable or you need an answer quickly, you can contact the Reference Desk (behind the Circulation Desk) in person or use our IM Chat.
