Please be aware that the library at the University cannot provide extended loan services, to ensure that nondisabled students are not disadvantaged. However, students with library-related needs could make use of their book/photocopying allowance or access a library assistant, provided by AccessAbility, to ensure that they have access to short-term loan texts.
