Welcome to the Library guide to accessing electronic books, journals and databases for users of screen readers and/or keyboards.
We would like to thank the Disability Support Team, within the Library at King's College, University of London for their permission to re-use their original guide, which has been a huge help to us in adapting the information for Staffs University students.
This guide gathers together information on the most used resources but does not include all of the eResources we have. For some resources it is not possible to identify the necessary information.
If you have any updates to the guidance given here, or any further hints and tips for accessing the resources you use for studying please let us know. You can send these to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
