The Libraries Accessibility Service

Based at the University Library, the Libraries Accessibility Service works to ensure library users have equal access to the services and resources they need, regardless of their accessibility needs.  For information and advice about accessible library services, including details of how to obtain readings in alternative formats, see their Cambridge Libraries Accessibility and Disability Guide or contact us and we'll be very happy to help.
