If the Library holds a copy of a book, journal or other work in a format which is not accessible to you, please contact We may be able to obtain or make an accessible alternate format for you using the copyright exception for disability. This is usually a digital version provided by the publisher or RNIB Bookshare. We require as much advance notice as possible; turnaround times can vary depending on the publisher and can be as little as 24 hours or up to 10 weeks.

Alternatively, if you have a digital resource that needs converting/making accessible, you can try using SensusAccess, a self-service online tool for current staff and students.
