Accessibility & Help for Users with a Physical Impairment

Easy Access to Media

 After consultation with the Lending Department, users with a physical impairment can order books from the open access holdings located in the University Library (UB) on the Firmanei Campus by filling out an order form.

The books you need will be selected and deposited in the Lending Department which is on Level 0 where you can collect them.

When filling out the order form, you must include the book number, the title of the book as well as your full name and your User ID number. The best way to do this is to search in Katalog Plus, then copy the data into the order form.
