Services and support
We aim to ensure that all our users can access library facilities and services. We encourage University members to disclose their disabilities to the University's Disability Advisory Service, in order to make full use of library and study support available.
If you are not a University member but hold membership at the Continuing Education Library, and have a disability and would like help to access our resources, please let us know.
For any disability matters, please contact the Assistant Librarian Amy Wolstenholme directly to discuss your requirements.
Readers with disabilities may be registered as privileged members. This provides extended loan periods and increases your borrowing allowance. Please ask library staff for details. Readers can also request proxy borrowing on their accounts: a nominated person can collect and return items on your behalf. All items borrowed in this way remain your responsibility.
