Disability services and adaptive technology

The Library aims to provide an online and physical environment in which all clients can access information, resources and services.  We work closely with the University's Disability Services to meet the needs of clients with a disability.

Readings in alternative formats

Library Support Services make available text books and readings in alternative formats such as accessible PDF and formatted Word files. Students should talk to their campus Disability Adviser if they think they may be eligible for this service.

We ask that academic staff who have a student with an Education Inclusion Plan (EIP) in their classes contact the Library's Support Services as soon as possible to arrange for the conversion of course readings included in LEO units.
