At Christ’s College library we can provide:


Book fetching: If finding books is difficult due to a disability (of any kind), we can fetch books for you. 

Your fetched books are reserved on the hold shelf opposite the self-issue machines on Floor 1 of the Library. You will need to place them on your account or ask library staff to do it for you. 

Please contact us at with the details of the books you would like us to fetch. We are also happy to discuss alternative locations for book collection or any other adjustments you need.


1 to 1 inductions: Library staff will be happy to introduce you to all of our library resources. Please book an appointment by contacting:


Extended loans: When registered with the ADRC you may be entitled to extended book loans (28 days instead of 14).

Your loans can still be renewed 4 times, and you will receive an email a few days before the book is due back so you have time to renew or return it.

If a book is requested by another library user, you will receive an email and be asked to return the book within 3 days. If you are unable to do this, please contact Library staff at so that we can help.


Non-Medical workers: Please make sure that non-medical workers are introduced to Library staff so that we can assist them. 


Alternative formats: The Libraries Accessibility Service provides information about alternative formats.


Scan and Deliver: The University Library offers a Scan and Deliver service of up to one chapter (or 5%) or a book. If you need more and qualify for a Copyright exception due to a disability, please contact the Libraries Accessibility Service.


If there are any additional services you feel we could provide, please do not hesitate to contact the library at
