The Assistive Technology Centre at Northampton Square Library makes available a range of assistive software packages, equipment and adaptive furniture. The Assistive Technology Centre is open with a reduced number of bookable spaces to enable social distancing.
You can book up to four hours per day. You can book a PC in an individual room or a PC at a desk in the open ATC area. There are two individual rooms and two desk spaces available.
To access a screenreader friendly version of the room booking system, look for the 'screen-readers' link at the bottom of the page.
The ATC is in Northampton Square Library Level 2. Turn right from the Library entrance or the accessible lift entrance and follow signage to the ATC. The door to the Assistive Technology Centre and all internal doors to individual rooms are automatic and will open when you swipe your City card on the reader. Further access details can be found on the Access Able guide.
