Leeds Beckett Library aims to lead the way in providing disability support for our students and Disability History Month (22 November - 22 December) provides an ideal opportunity to look at the work we do.
UK Disability History Month runs from 22 November to 22 December 2018. Take a look at the Library resources available that relate to this year's theme Disability and Music.
Thank you for your feedback on the new look spaces on the ground floor of each library - we're glad you like them!
As well as lots of positive comments such as "better work environment" and "bright and open" you had some concerns and queries so we asked Kate Kluttz, Learning Spaces and Operations Manager, to respond.
The Library at Leeds Beckett provides lots of different spaces to help you work together on group assignments, study in silence and more. Find out about our recommended places as we celebrate National Libraries Week with its theme of "My Time. My Space. My Library".
