The Library offers a service to provide books in alternative formats to disabled students who cannot access printed materials. This service is offered to any student who has a visual impairment, specific learning difficulty or any other condition that makes accessing printed material difficult.
Once you have submitted your form, the Alternative Formats team will be in contact with you about your request and approximate timeframes. Please aim to send in your form as soon as possible to allow maximum time to process your requests.
Students are entitled to use this service for any Essential Reading that they need for their modules. Many reading list books are already available in electronic format through the Library catalogue. These can be accessed when you need them without having to request them.
To access this service, you must be registered with the Disability & Mental Health Team at the University. To register with the team, please visit the Disability Support page.
The Wellbeing Team provides a confidential support service to disabled students and can offer advice and guidance on reasonable adjustments and further support that is available at the University and through extra funding available such as Disabled Students’ Allowances.
