Reading and writing support

Do you have a reading disability due to for example dyslexia, vision impairment or adhd? If so, we can help you obtain your course literature as talking books. You also get extended loans on printed course textbooks.

We have three contact librarians for students with reading and writing disabilities. We recommend you to make an appointment before your first visit: talbokhtbibl.luse.

Talking Books can be downloaded from Legimus. The librarian will create an account for you.
