Seven Tips for Accessible Library Use

Studying and researching at University can be daunting for everyone, but especially if you have a specific learning difference or individualised learning need. Exeter University Library staff want to support everyone in their study and ensure that our Library resources and services are available equitably and accessibly to all. We've therefore created this guide to explain how we can help you and how you can navigate and use our resources and services. Here's some top tips for getting the most out of the Library whilst you are studying or researching with us:

  1. Get to know the Library spaces if you ever plan to study or research on campus.
  2. Book an individual study room if you are eligible and would find this helpful.
  3. Learn about our Library e-resources and how you can use each type in an accessible way.
  4. Download and convert e-resources into another format if you have preferred file types or assistive software.
  5. Discover how to obtain printed resources in an alternative format if we don't already have electronic access to them.
  6. Take a look at our Study Skills Reading List to see whether there are any texts that could help in your study or research.
  7. Get in touch with the Library if there is anything else we can do to help you.
