Leeds University Library is committed to making our libraries and services accessible to all. We have a number of accessible study spaces, can help you to find and borrow items, and provide accessible training sessions, inductions and tours.
We are a member of the Open Rose Group, which aims to improve services for disabled users of academic libraries in Yorkshire.

- assistance with photocopying (when staff time allows)
- retrieval of material from shelves (when staff time allows)
- accessible training sessions and handouts

We also have accessible study rooms in the Brotherton, Edward Boyle and Laidlaw Libraries.
