General Use Equipment

Details of equipment available for use in our libraries. 

Coloured Overlays

Coloured overlays are available for anybody to borrow from the Lending Desk in all libraries.

They are particularly useful for someone with a print impairment who finds coloured backgrounds useful when reading printed texts.

Adjustable Height Desks

The majority of libraries have adjustable height desks available. The most common desk available is a 'Sit and Stand' manual crank adjustable desk. Some libraries have individual electronically adjustable desks available.

They are very simple in that you turn the handle on the manual crank or press the control button on the electronic desks.

Adjustable height desks can be booked through Click and Study.
