University Library

Disabled users

The Library service is happy to help users with disabilities make use of our resources. This page highlights aspects of our service tailored to your needs. Please visit borrowing and services and sites for standard information, or contact us for further details.

These pages mainly refer to services for students but we are also able to assist members of staff and visitors to the Library.

Information is passed on to the Library about students who register with Disability Support (disability support) and indicate that they might need help with using the library.

Please let us know what support you require, and we will endeavour to assist you in any way possible. You are always welcome to ask any staff at the service points or enquiry desks for help that you may need. However, we understand that some people would prefer to arrange a discussion elsewhere. If you think that library staff may need to dedicate quite a bit of time to helping you, with requests such as checking reading lists and fetching books, it is a good idea to try to make advance arrangements.

New student support

If you are new to the University or the Library please have a look at our support for new students. We have online advice on how to effectively search the library catalogue and other resources, as well as a range of library tours so you can become familiar with the library.
