Reading & Writing Disabilities

Do you have dyslexia, visual impairment, or other reading or writing disabilities? If so, you can get your course literature in alternative formats, such as talking books or braille. You also get extended loans on course textbooks.

We have two contact librarians for students with reading and writing disabilities. We recommend you to make an appointment before your first visit, please contact Mikael Borg (mikael.borghtbibl.luse) or Katarina Wickström (katarina.wickstromhtbibl.luse).

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