Information literacy includes finding, evaluating and using information. In modern society, information literacy becomes a kind of functional literacy and meta-competence that allows the acquisition of new skills. According to the Law on the Croatian Registry of Persons with Disability a person with disability is a person who has a permanent limitation, decrease or loss of the ability to do physical or mental activities as a result of a damage health. Therefore, the duty of every librarian is to permit to all disabled persons to feel welcome in the library. Librarians need to be familiar with the characteristics of individual disability and ways of access to library materials and services for users with disabilities. Libraries, in the creation of their services and providers, must count on the entire population. In particular, they should ensure equality of access and services must be equally available, meaning that no one should be disadvantaged. Students with disabilities are considered students with visual and hearing impairments, motor disabilities, physical disabilities, chronic illnesses, specific learning disabilities (such as dyslexia and ADHD) and students with mental illnesses and disorders. Classifying students in this group, we try to point out the need to adjust the academic contents for their capabilities and present some examples of such adjustments.
