Assistive technology in school libraries is important in the success of all users, including the student body, their families, and the faculty. School libraries meet the various needs of those who utilize its services, and librarians have the responsibility of assisting those users with the resources the library provides, especially its assistive technology. This review of the research focuses on what assistive technology in the library looks like and why it is important, what tools are available, and what librarians need to know in order to provide instruction for its proper use. The literature review also discusses the addition of Universal Design for Learning as instrumental to the use and implementation of assistive technology in the school library.
