The more virtual way of working at the moment means that you will need to access online resources for your study, and this can be complicated if you have accessibility and/or disability requirements.

The Libraries Accessibility Service has produced an accessibility & disability LibGuide for students. The LibGuide pulls together information about accessibility services (including accessible readings, catalogues and reading lists, eresource platforms, assistive technology) and signposts sources of help.

There is information on our website on How to access online resources remotely, how to Find journals and e-journals, and which online databases relevant for chemistry and related subjects are available. Find out about the ebooks available at the University on the Cambridge Ebooks LibGuide. This includes a really useful tab on Accessibility.
