Accessible materials

Do you have a reading impairment, such as dyslexia, visual impairment, or ADHD (attention deficit ​hyperactivity disorder)? The Library of Science can help you borrow course literature in an accessible format. You can also borrow printed course textbooks for extended loan periods (28 days).

Talking books are available in the talking book catalogue Legimus. Book an appointment with one of our contact librarians for reading and writing support to open a Legimus account. Once you have an account you can find and download talking books yourself.
