At the initiative of the University of Novi Sad, a proposal has been sent to the Autonomous Province of Vojvodina, Provincial Secretariat for Higher Education and Scientific-Research Activity, in order to introduce affirmative measures for enrollment of master academic studies at the faculties of Novi Sad University. This affirmative measure has been adopted and will be available to students starting from the academic year 2018/2019.

Further adjustment and adaptation of the Central Library at the University of Novi Sad has been carried out in order to support students with disabilities. An important segment in this adjustment is the use of equipment purchased via Trans2Work Project in the previous period.  Digitalization of publications intended for students with disabilities has been carried out within the regular library activities, as well as printing of the contents with Braille printers.

The Central Library of the Faculty of Philosophy has been equiped with personal computers with accompanying assistive equipment and software intended for the students with disabilities. Peer mentors from the Student Support Center have been informed and instructed for using this equipment.
