Service Animals are individually trained to do work or perform tasks for individuals with disabilities to enable them to access all the areas of campus where they may go, just as a person without a disability would do. For example, such dogs may help a person with low vision find their way around campus and within buildings. By distinction, Emotional Support Animals are not necessarily trained and are used to provide emotional support that alleviates one or more symptoms or effects of an individual's documented disability.
The library follows Georgia State’s policy on service animals:
- Service animals are welcome in public areas of the library. The service animal must be on a harness, leash or other tether, unless the Owner's disability precludes use of such tether.
- Emotional support animals are not allowed in common areas of campus, including the library.
