Library Services for Additional Needs

Library services for users with disabilities or learning differences

Getting started

Our aim is to ensure that all our users are able to take full advantage of the services that the library has to offer.

Library users who would like to make use of the Assistive Technology Centre and additional services should first contact Disability Services or the Neurodiversity Support team who will make a referral and provide us with an initial assessment of your requirements. Your local library site representative will then be able to put the necessary arrangements in place for you.


Services and resources include

  • Extended loan periods on 7 day items
  • Book collection
  • Assistive software
  • Assistive equipment
  • Alternative formats
  • 1-2-1 support

Find books, journals and articles

CityLibrary Search is a library search engine that you can use to find books, e-books, journal articles, conference proceedings, theses, videos, and much more.  

These instructions provide more information for screen reader users.
