Users with disabilities or additional needs


We aim to make our resources and facilities accessible to all users of the Library.  Here you can find information about specific services for Library users who are registered with the Disability Unit:

Please ask any member of Library staff for help if required. 

Alternatively, if you would like to discuss your individual requirements please contact Anne Perkins, tel. 0121 204 4492, email a.v.perkins@aston.ac.uk

Please consider declaring your disability to us.  This ensures that we can give you the right kind of support.   All information will be kept in the strictest confidence.  You may also discuss your Library needs in confidence with the Disability Team, tel. 0121 204 4711, email disabilityteam@aston.ac.uk, who can then ask the Library to set up additional services on your behalf. 

If you require your Study Support Worker to access Library services on your behalf, please complete an 'Authorisation for Use of Library Services' memo.  This is also available from the Help desk on the ground floor of the Library and it will need to be produced at all times when visiting the Library.

Contacting the Library

You can telephone, post or email us with your enquiry.

Access to the Library building

There are lifts to all floors of the Library.


There are adapted toilets in the Library accessed with a RADAR key. If you require a key, this is available from the Library Reception desk.
