Are you student with a reading disability – due to for example dyslexia, vision impairment or adhd? If so, you can get help at the library with obtaining adapted course texts, such as talking books.

Talking books are produced by the Swedish Agency for Accessible Media, MTM, and registered in their catalogue, Legimus, where you can search for and download them.

If you use talking books, you also have the right to borrow course texts for four weeks instead of two. Talk to the contact person at the library in order to access this service.

The library has a dedicated librarian for students with various disabilities. We recommend that you contact the librarian to make an appointment for your first visit.

Also take a look at our talking books guide:
