Students and library support workers

Instructions for students and library support workers.



Students/LSWs are expected to carry out an initial search of required reading using StarPlus, resource lists or information from tutors to identify relevant texts.

If required texts are not available electronically or in the required format the student should contact their Disability adviser to be registered for alternative formats.

The library will then create an RNIB Bookshare account for the student and email them with log-in details and instructions.

If the item is not available from RNIB Bookshare, the student should inform the library who will then put in a request with the publisher.
