The Disability Service department houses a library run by staff specializing in the provision of services to students with disabilities. Among the facilities available are access to bibliographic research tools, inter-library lending, reproduction of documents in the possession of the Library (Document Delivery), and the procurement of material in alternative formats to suit different types of disability. As regards the provision of items in alternative formats, the time needed for their preparation may vary depending on the number of pages, the type of text and the format requested.
The “C.Offelli” computer classroom is equipped with workstations for persons with impaired vision (special monitors, Braille printer and bar code scanner, enlarging software, voice-synthesis devices...), with motor disability (electronically height-adjustable desktop, alternative input systems, joysticks, shielded keyboards, voice-recognition, page-turners...) and students with dyslexia (conceptual map software, voice synthesis, reading aids). To enter the classroom, the user must supply a code and a password, which will give access to the reserved area.
Also available to students are a multimedia room equipped with an interactive whiteboard, and a room equipped for one-to-one sessions with tutors. The Disability Service also has certain computer and technological aids that can be accessed by students who ask to use them. Users can also request the loan of certain specific instruments that must be returned at the end of the teaching activity for the academic year during which they are requested.
