Almost all books, CDs and videos are on open access shelves. Books are shelved alphabetically by language. New acquisitions since 2007 have shelf marks with bigger fonts.
Users with mobility difficulties
There is no lift in the Language Centre and the library is on the second floor. Library staff can bring books to the ground floor and/or assist in removing books from the library shelves.
Visual and reading support
There are magnifiers, coloured papers and acetates available in the library. New acquisitions since 2007 have shelf marks with bigger fonts. Fetching books, photocopying or scanning, enlarging items by photocopying etc. can very easily be accommodated by library staff. Extended borrowing rights can be allowed.
There are no specific facilities for readers with hearing impairments. However, the library collection has material in several sign languages, including BSL (British Sign Language).
