Library and Learning Resources are committed to providing online resources which are accessible for all our users.
We aim to provide resources which meet or exceed level AA of the W3C Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.1 and now include an assessment of accessibility as standard practice when purchasing new resources.
Our digital collections are hosted by third party publishers on their own web platforms which are independently developed. Many publishers are prioritising digital accessibility and have their own accessibility statements.
Further information can be found below.
