Disabled and Dyslexic Users

Welcome to the Library

Welcome to the Leeds Beckett Library web pages for Disabled and Dyslexic users. All of the Library website is relevant to you, but here you will find information about the facilities and support we provide to people registered with Disability Advice. Please use the tabs above to find out more.

Information about how to gain physical access to the Libraries is available on our Find Us page.


If you need help with a disability related issue in the Library, Sue Smith is the Learning Support Officer (Disability and Dyslexia).

She can provide assistance with:

  • the Disability Resource Areas
  • assistive software
  • using Library services and equipment
  • researching a topic including journals
  • searching the catalogue
  • finding your way around the Library
  • referencing and bibliographies
  • obtaining items in accessible formats
  • or any other Library query

One-to-one appointments are available, please use the Book an Appointment button.

Alternatively, if it is a quick query, you can come to a drop-in session.

These drop-in sessions are aimed at students who have Library related queries which can be dealt with quickly, for example:

  • QuickScan (dyslexia screening)
  • Finding books
  • Using assistive software
  • Introduction to the Disability Resource Area
  • Meeting Sue Smith, the Library Learning Support Officer (Disability and Dyslexia)

Drop-ins are for approximately 10 minutes and take place in:

  • City Campus– The office in the Disability Resource Area (room LS315)
  • Headingley – the 1:1 support room, ground floor JGG19b (next to the Disability Resource Area).

If the Learning Support Officer is with another student, please knock on the door so to let her know you are waiting.

If you require more time one-to-one appointments are available, use the "Book an Appointment" button on this page.

The sessions run on most weeks during term time.
