Are you having difficulties with handling books on the shelves?
Are you having difficulties moving from your student room to the library or from one library to another?
Is it impossible for you to consult books printed in small font?
As a student with a disability you can make use of the particular facilities the University Library is offering.
- First, in consultation with your Disability Officer (Disability Team of Student Services) we determine which faculty or campus library is most appropriate for you. This library will become your 'home library'. The library staff will give you all the assistance you need in reaching and handling all the available books, articles, magazines, etc.
- If you need some material from another library you can ask the library staff of your home library. They will arrange the materials to be made available for consultation at your home library or to be taken on loan.
- There is special reading equipment (donated by IBM) available in five libraries which can be used for consulting texts by visually impaired students and by students with dyslexia. If you know already that you will be needing this equipment, then choose one of these five libraries as your home library. All the necessary material that you need from other libraries can be moved to this library.
Do you wish to make use of the facilities mentioned above? Please contact the disability officers from the Disability Team of Student Services (via: email@example.com). In consultation with your disability officer the library staff of the chosen home library will be notified.
