Southern Maryland Center for Independent Living (SMCIL) in collaboration with Maryland Technology Assistance Program (MD TAP) has opened the Southern Maryland Regional Assistive Technology Loan Library to support access to Assistive Technology.  The AT loan library enables individuals with disabilities to live, work and learn more independently through Assistive Technology by allowing a consumer to see and try the latest AT prior to purchasing.
