Using recommended resources


The Library has a stock of over 90 000 electronic books which provide access to print materials in a format which allows for the use of screen readers or an internal reader. Our suppliers also provide individual advice to those with additional needs using their products. If you would like to test using an e-book before starting your course, please contact the Library.

We also provide a large amount of journal literature with over 17 000 titles in electronic format which can be read by screen readers or used with standard pdf accessibility tools.

We provide guides to using these and other resources. These are available in alternative formats upon request.


We try to maximise the digitisations on reading lists to benefit all students. Digitisations attached to reading lists have been formatted to work with most screen readers and can be reproduced in alternative formats on request.

Alternative Formats

If you are print-impaired and need your reading materials in an alternative format, we can assist with this. However, it can be a lengthy process if we have to create them, so the sooner we start the better. If you think you are likely to need your resources in an alternative format please contact us as early as possible so we can advise on timescales and qualifying disabilities.
