In order to ensure equal opportunity for all people with disability, the U.S. Congress extended the 1961 Civil Right Act to include people with disabilities by enacting Americans with Disability Act (ADA) in 1990, and continuously funded a number of organizations for providing various types of support services to people with disabilities. Under ADA all institutions of higher education in the U.S are also required to provide equal opportunity to their disable students, faculty, staffs by providing various types of disability related services. This paper attempts to develop a model for an internet based disability resource information center for an institution of higher education in the U.S as a part of information resource management for improving the facility and the performance of their employees, and students with disabilities.
