Library Inclusion and Support

Article

Goldsmiths Library is committed to ensuring that all students can make full use of our services and facilities. We seek to meet the needs of students and academics by providing the best and most relevant literature in print and electronic format. Subject librarians teach Library users to access material that will allow you to maximize all the relevant resources currently available.

 

Students with additional support needs register with the Inclusion and Learning Support team and as part of your support the Library will provide:

 

Extended Loans
You are able to borrow short loan items for double the loan period (e.g. two weeks for a one week loan). Find out how to renew your loans.

 

Fetching Service
Material can be collected from the shelves for you, ready for collection at the Library help desk.
