Library Tour Request
You can arrange for someone to pick up and return items for you. They will need to bring your ID card, proof of their own identity, and a letter from you saying that they have permission to use your card.
We are also happy to come with you to look for books and other items in the library. Just ask at the help desk.
If you need a helper or support worker to accompany you when using the library then please contact us online to arrange support at email@example.com
We can copy journal articles or sections from books for you. You can pick up the copies at the library or we can send them to you by post or email.
If a book or other item is available to be borrowed in the library then we can send it to you by post.
We can fetch books and other items from our shelves and keep them on the hold shelf of the campus library of your choice, for you to collect. We will keep them for up to a week.
The Southwark Campus Library has a DaVinci magnifier which can magnify books, change the colour and contrast of the text and background, and read printed text out loud.
We would like to assist you in any way we can. You can contact us by email at firstname.lastname@example.org, by phone on 020 7815 6607 or in person at our help desk in the Library.
