Leeds University Library

Disabled users

Leeds University Library aims to make all resources and services accessible to all. We take a proactive approach, trying to anticipate the needs of disabled people to develop an inclusive learning environment.

We are happy to help you with photocopying and retrieving material from shelves. However, please be aware that if it's very busy in the Library there may be no free staff. If you find this is a recurring issue, contact the University's Disabled Students' Assessment and Support service and ask about personal assistants.

We try to make most of our printed information accessible but if you have difficulty reading one of our documents we can enlarge it. Just ask at the enquiry desk.
