Remediation Requests & Information 

E.H. Butler Library is committed to acquiring digital resources that are accessible and ADA compliant. Unfortunately, some products must be procured that are below accessibility standards. These products sometimes fulfill accreditation standards, grant responsibilities, or seminal/crucial content to the curricula. If you come across digital content that needs to be remediated, please use this request form. A librarian will contact you as soon as possible. If you have questions regarding the campus remediation policy, please contact Chris Hulsman, E. H. Butler Library EIT Compliance Officer (716-878-3291 or
