Welcome to the Library Services guide to accessing electronic books, journals and databases for users of screen readers and/or keyboards. We have tried to gather together what we know about our most used resources.
Grateful acknowledgement is made to the Open University library team who allowed us to use information on accessibility from their website .
We are keen for you to share any updates, hints and tips for accessing the resources you find useful while studying at King's. Please send them to us using any of the means in the Contact Us box.
King’s Library Services is dedicated to developing consistently innovative, trusted and accessible services, collections and resources in pursuit of the King’s mission. We aim to be responsive, inclusive, knowledgeable and friendly – proudly supporting the University community: every student, every colleague, every time.
