Meeting your accessibility needs

We offer a range of services and additional support for our students, staff and visitors who have:

  • physical disabilities or impairments
  • sensory impairments or sensory loss
  • dyslexia, dyspraxia, ADHD and other learning disabilities
  • ongoing health or medical conditions that have an adverse effect on your use of the Library and its services.

On the following pages you will find information about our services and facilities when you are visiting our Library on campus, including information about study aids, assistive technology and accessible study spaces in the Library. These facilities and services are available to everyone, but may be particularly useful for those with any of these additional needs.

There is also information about our 'Privilege Scheme', which can provide students and staff with further assistance, such as:

  • extended loan periods
  • books and e-books in alternative formats
  • proxy borrowing (nominating a person to borrow books on your behalf)
  • book-fetching (where we get books you need from the shelves for you)

In the last page of this section, you can find information about the accessibility of our digital resources, such as e-books, databases and online journal articles.

Our Accessibility Support Librarians are happy to talk to you about your accessibility needs and answer any questions you may still have. Please feel free to contact the Library or you can book an online or face-to-face appointment using our online booking system.
