Guide to Library and Archive Services During COVID-19: Students registered with Disability Learning Support

Students registered with Disability Learning Support

We are aware that some of our extended loan and disabled users may need additional help or services. 

Disability Learning Support (DLS) are available to help you explore how the university can support you throughout your time at Westminster but you are always welcome to contact us with any library-related queries. We suggest you email your Academic Liaison Librarian initially if you have any concerns that have not been addressed already via contact with DLS. 

Postal loans

We're introducing a postal loans service for students who are unable to come to the library to collect reserved items or who experience difficulties reading items online. This will be available from 14th September.

The postal service is for students who have been assessed by our colleagues in Disability Learning Support (DLS) and given eligibility to borrow books for an extended period due to their disability. If you feel you are likely to qualify for this service, but have not yet been assessed you can go to the DLS webpages for information on registering with them. They will explore how the university can support you throughout your time at Westminster. 

If you are an academic member of staff who may experience difficulties using the book collection service please contact your Academic Liaison Librarian

To request a loan via post please use this online form. We will aim to post them to your address within a week. You can request up to five items at a time and can borrow a maximum of 40 items.

We are not currently accepting returns so please ensure you choose your items carefully; you won't be able to borrow additional items once you reach the 40 item limit. 

Please note that whilst we strive to offer the highest standard of service at all times the unpredictable and evolving nature of the global situation means that this service is subject to change and withdrawal at short notice.

Further help

For more information on the services the Library is providing this term please refer to our Online Guide. Alternatively you can get in touch via email or our live Chat service.
