Translating high quality research specific to better design and building practice

HMinfo Libraries

HMinfo has developed three Resource Libraries.

Research Library

HMinfo edits and maintains an electronic Research Library database with over 3,500 online and hardcopy materials relevant to the home modification sector. The Library collection can be searched using our tailored search engine.

The Research Library does not lend books and other items. Under special circumstances, requests to use the library may be made via email to

Enabling Block Library

The HMinfo Enabling Block Library is a collection of Computer Aided Drafting (CAD) assets developed specifically for the purpose of providing freely available Universal Design tools for both commercial and non-commercial stakeholders so that all can create spaces which take into account the size and movement restrictions of accessible mobility products. The Block Library is an essential step to facilitating the participation and social inclusion of the aged and people with disabilities in both private and public space design and redesign. These simple but significant downloadable drawings and models will provide all with the knowledge of space and other environmental requirements for the safe and effective access of a range of mobility products.

Case Study Library

The HMinfo Case Study Library showcases actual home modification cases submitted by website users so they can be reused for problem sensing and problem solving. The aim of sharing home modification problems and solutions, is to assist better and more effective practice outcomes.

Submitting a Case Study

By adding your case study to the database innovative or unusual case information problems and solutions can be shared. It is hoped that this sharing may assist better and more effective practice outcomes. The process for submission of case studies is outlined in the Guide to HMinfo Case Studies.

For further information on submitting a case study to the Case Study Library, please contact us at .

Registered HMinfo website users can submit a case study with the Submit a Resource form.
