Assistive Resources

Christ’s College library is committed to providing equal access to our services and facilities for all users. For any additional support please do not hesitate to contact us.

Getting Started
  • The university's Disability Resource centre (DRC) can help with support, advice and resources. Please visit their page on Advice and Support for Students 

 

  • Our Library team and Library website will help you get started with any adjustments you may need. Please email us at library@christs.cam.ac.uk 

 

 

  • 1:1 induction sessions: all new students will be sent induction information, and we hold induction sessions at the beginning of each academic year, to help you get started with using the library. If you would rather book a 1:1 session, just let us know and we can arrange that for you.
