  • Digitise material using the Library’s Zeutschel scanner and Microsoft SharePoint as the storage and delivery mechanism for appropriate formats.
  • Play a key role in liaising with students with a declared print disability to advise and produce accessible scans of reading materials for individuals.  This particular service involves liaison with tutors, Assistive Technologists and the Bibliographic Services Librarian.  
  • Keep an accurate record of bibliographic details for auditing and compliance purposes. 

The University’s national and international research and teaching activities all rely upon seamless access to the information resources maintained by the Technical Services department.
