Welcome back to the Library - see below for what's new to help you with your studies.
This week is Dyslexia Awareness Week 2017, and this year’s theme is ‘Positive about Dyslexia’. The Library has a wide range of support available for students with dyslexia to help you succeed at University.
We told you in a previous post about a project to audit and improve the accessibility of eBooks, which has now been completed. Sue Smith and Vicky Dobson from Library Disability Support worked on the eBook Accessibility Audit project as part of a team from across the UK. This also included Jamie Phillips from Leeds Beckett University, and colleagues from the University of Kent, the University of Liverpool, Manchester Metropolitan University and York St John University.
We have lots of software on the PCs and laptops in the Library to support your studies.
While we’re really excited about the newly refurbished first floor of the Sheila Silver Library, we know it’s not perfect.
