DCC Library

DCC Library 

Welcome to the Disability Cultural Center’s Library! We have a collection of disability-related books and magazines spanning many genres all available for checking out. Materials in the DCC Library will be available to support UT community members with academics and research, as well as personal and professional development related to disability. View our entire catalog on TinyCat.  

History  

The DCC Library was established in January 2024 to provide a resource for the UT community to explore disability through literature. In 2023, UT’s HornRaiser helped us fundraise almost $300 towards the DCC Library, along with the spreading the news and spurring generous donations from all over. This fundraiser began the DCC Library’s journey from an idea into reality!
