Physical Accessibility

  • Dabney Library has a short set of stairs at its South entrance (inside Dabney Hall) and steps into its North Entrance (outside door). Stairs from the first floor to the basement of Dabney Library are located in the Southwest corner of the Library.
  • For patrons who cannot use stairs, access to Dabney Library (both first floor and basement) is mediated via a locked elevator, for which the HSS Librarian and the Sherman Fairchild Information Desk have a key. Please contact the Library for assistance.
  • The Library is happy to page books from the Dabney Library and make them available for pick up at Sherman Fairchild Library.

Book Return

  • The book return is located inside Dabney Library, just next to the South (interior) entrance to the Library.


  • There is a printer in the basement of Dabney Library in the Southeast corner of the room with the book stacks.


  • Multi-stall men's and women's restrooms are available in the Dabney building, down the hall from the Library toward the South entrance of the building.

Quiet Spaces

  • The first floor and the audiovisual materials room in the basement of Dabney Library are designated for quiet study. This means that occasional discussion is allowed, phones should be set to vibrate or silent, and headphones must be at low volume.


  • The first floor of Dabney Library has overhead windows on three walls of the Library, which let in some natural light. There are also overhead fluorescent lights.
  • Dabney Library basement is lit with overhead fluorescent lights and has no exterior windows.
