Library Policy on SpLD / Dyslexia

Share Icon

There are no special loan entitlements for students who have been diagnosed with Specific Learning Difficulties (SpLD), which include dyslexia. This is because, unlike most university libraries, we do not have a “short loan” period. Our shortest loan period is the Week Loan, with up to four online renewals, provided the book has not been reserved. Additional renewals may be available on request. 

If you have Disability Support Allowance in place, and have received specific advice about library entitlements, please talk to your personal tutor.

If you have any questions about the provision within copyright law for the making of “accessible copies” of library texts, please talk to the librarian.
