Abstract: The objective of this article is to propose accessibility to information as a discipline for helping librarians to render services to disabled people in university libraries. The main topics are access to information; historical aspects of accessibility; legislation on disabled people; and attributions of librarians rendering services to the university community. Two programs about accessibility to Brazilian universities were analyzed: Program of Accessibility of PUC-Campinas (ProAces) and Laboratory of Accessbility of Unicamp (LAB). These programs are a reference in literature of this area and are used as a basis for proposing this discipline. Barriers were found and solutions presented for making the access to information easier for disabled people. An exploratory and descriptive analysis based mainly on bibliographic research and visits to accessible libraries.
