Services for Users with Disabilities

You can also access the PDF guide: Services for users with disabilities.

Welcome to the University of Bath Library. We are committed to providing equality of opportunity for all users of our services and facilities.  We do this by providing appropriate facilities, including assistive software and equipment, as well as assistance with using the Library and accessing its resources.

This guide provides an overview of services the Library offers in support of students and staff with disabilities. More detailed guides to our services are available. We can provide any Library guide on coloured paper, on request.
