Roseworthy Campus Library - Assistance to users with disabilities
|Paging of items|
The Library recognises that users with disabilities may encounter difficulty
in making full use of our resources. We welcome the opportunity to assist
you and have provided a number of services for this purpose.
Users with a disability are invited to get in touch with the Campus Librarian so that any special requirements may be discussed. Please ask at the Service Enquiries desk or telephone 8313 7844.
The Library is on the ground floor of the Eastick Building, and there are no stairs or steps to negotiate.
Guide dogs are permitted in all areas of the Library.
Emergency exits are located on the western and eastern sides of the building. Users whose disability may make it difficult to use the emergency exits should notify the staff member at the Library Service Enquiries Desk of their presence in the building.
This is especially important in the evenings when there are not many people in the Library.
Library staff can provide a desk telephone -- please ask if you need to make a call.
The Library has a Library Search which is accessible from any computer connected to the Internet.
Users with a disability that prevents them from using a keyboard, or whose health may be affected by the types of screen displays at the computers, may ask the staff member at the Service Enquiries desk to look up items for them.
If you are unable because of a disability to retrieve items from the shelves, we will try to collect them for you. You will need to give advance notice to the Library (telephone 8313 7844) of the items you require.
Paged items will be held at the Library Service Enquiries Desk for 24 hours after the time for which they were requested.
Users with disabilities who are referred to the Library by Learning & Disability Access, may be entitled to an extended loan period.
If another user places a Request on an item that has been borrowed for an extended loan period, the loan period will be reduced to the minimum loan period for that item.
A loan may be renewed up to five times, provided that nobody has placed a Request on the book.
By arrangement with the Campus Librarian, items from the Reserve collection may be borrowed for a longer loan period, if reading aids available outside the Library are required.
If you are unable to use a photocopier because of a disability, the Library will do photocopying on your behalf. Please ask at the Service Enquiries Desk, or phone 8313 7844.
You should allow a minimum of 24 hours, Monday-Friday, for your request(s) to be processed.
A charge of 11 cents per A4 page is made for this service.
A wheelchair accessible toilet is located in the Library foyer.
