Learning Support: Using the Library

Declaring your disability

If you have registered with the Disability Services & Learning Support  team, then you can ask that they inform the library.  If we are aware , then we can put things in place to help you.  This could include offering longer loan periods and the ability to reserve books on the shelf.  The Librarian responsible for liaising with  Disability Services


Items are normally issued for 2 weeks at a time, and automatically renewed for up to 6 months.   If you register with the Library you will be able to borrow for 3 weeks each time. 

Items can sometimes be reserved by other users which would stop your loans renewing.  ... make sure you check your college email to make sure the items are not due back

If your books are overdue and you have any problems with illnesses , then please ask your Learning Support Tutor/Assistant to contact the Library on your behalf. 

Students registered as Learning Support can also reserve items actually on the shelf.  So if you find the library confusing, or have mobility problems, we can find the book for you and have it waiting at the Library Information Desk for collection.  Alternatively, you can just come into the library and ask for help finding items. 

Extra Help

You can make an appointment with a Librarian.  Librarians are available from 8.30 am to 7.00 pm Monday to Thursday, and 8.30 - 5.00 on Fridays. 

Some of our major electronic books and magazines (journals) can read text back including those provided by Wilson web or Gale Cengage.

Dawsonera and E-book Central E books use Adobe Digital Editions ‘read out loud’ software if it is loaded onto the computer.
