Accessibility

The Library has a range of services and assistive technology for customers with disabilities or learning differences.

Borrowing rights

For students registered with University Disability Services borrowing rights are the same, with the exception of 3 day loans which are issued for 7 days.

Proxy borrowing

Those who have difficulties in accessing the material may arrange for a proxy borrower who can borrow books on their behalf.

Accessing materials

If you need help getting books from the shelves, assistance can be provided by roaming Library Stewards and staff on the Library Helpdesk between 08:30am - 21:30pm.

We can also post books and journal articles to you (payment required for postage). For more information, please see Postal Loans.
