What help is available if I am struggling to access the reading I need?

If you need to access books online, you may find the Library’s ever increasing collection of eBooks useful. See the Accessibility Help link for each eBook supplier on the eBook Collections page for advice on how to make eBooks more accessible.

The Library provides a range of assistive software which can aid your reading, such as reading books aloud.  See the Software page Study Skills Software tab.  Read & Write and ClaroRead software can be used to scan printed material so that it can be read aloud.

You can also use SensusAccess to convert files into more accessible formats. 

If you need any help contact the Learning Support Officer (see contact details on this page).

The Disability Advice Team can refer eligible students to the Library's Alternative Formats Service where additional support is required. 

Please note that your course team is responsible for ensuring the accessibility of course documents such as your module handbook.
