Longer Book Loans
We can arrange for library loans to be extended.
Library Staff will offer a book fetching service for those who have difficulties accessing material on the shelves.
Flying Start Textbooks
The Flying Start textbook scheme provides you with an electronic copy of the core textbook for every module that you will study on your course. They can be accessed via your module reading list or BibliU.
For further details, see Flying Start ebooks.
Accessible Library Books
It may be possible for us to provide material in electronic formats. This is done in cooperation with individual publishers and RNIB, and is subject to copyright law.
Specific Study Space Requirements
If you need a particular type of study space, we'll do our best to accommodate specific needs.
Specific Assistive Technology
We have an electronic magnifier with optical character recognition for users who are print impaired. The Student Support Service will advise if this facility is helpful to you.
The Library Reception Desk has a portable hearing loop. Indicate to the staff if you require this service. Remember to switch your hearing aid to the "T" position.
The photocopier/printer/scanner in the library is able to scan documents and save them as text (RTF) files which can then be read using text-to-speech software available on most PCs. Ask at the IT helpdesk for assistance. Staff may also request for larger items to be sent to Coventry University for digitisation.
The photocopier/printer in the library can enlarge documents, and print them on A4 or A3 paper. If you would benefit from printing on to coloured paper, we have a limited range available. Ask at the Library Helpdesk for assistance.
Support with Your Studies
The Library and Learning Innovation team offer a range of workshops as part of the "Spotlight" programme to support students with their studies, including Harvard referencing, research skills; etc. One-to-one support is also available by appointment.
