The Library has a range of additional services, equipment and support available for users with reasonable adjustments.
For more help please contact:
From September 2021, we will be providing a personal RNIB Bookshare account to the following students:
Students who are visually impaired.
Students who cannot physically manipulate a book.
An account will be set up by the Disability and Dyslexia Service Team as part of their registration with the service. Eligible students already registered with the Disability and Dyslexia Service can request an account by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org directly.
You will be able to search the RNIB collection to locate accessible books that have been added to the Collection or request a book be made available (estimated turn around is 10 weeks). For further details, please go to the RNIB BookShare Books website.
If we hold a print copy in the Library, we will scan it for DSDS eligible students and will work to source other unavailable items. Dyslexic students will need to come to the Library to scan a print copy yourself (unless you have a COVID related reason for not being able to come onto campus).
Once you leave Roehampton, you are no longer eligible to use RNIB Bookshare, as membership is accessed via an educational establishment only. You can still make use of the RNIB Library which is completely free and has over 60,000 items in the collection. Have a look at the Information for students about RNIB for FAQs.
This service provided by the Library provides teaching and learning materials in an accessible format to students who are visually impaired or those who cannot physically manipulate a book.
In order to place requests:
We aim to provide 100% of Essential resources in a digital format for all students as standard. Our eBook providers are working to comply or fully meet with Accessibility Standard regulations. Full details for individual platforms can be found on our Third Party Accessibility Statements webpage.
