A conference on academic library services to disabled students is summarized. Presentations which focused on the global context of library services and the information role of library personnel, the need to develop qualitative and quantitative standards dealing with technical as well as service aspects, the growing body of information resources on library services for disabled students, the importance of bibliographic instruction for disabled students, the need for user involvement, the importance of taped materials, and the advent of new equipment are noted.
