This page is intended to highlight key resources which information professionals can use to support library users with special needs. Disability is defined broadly to include neurodiversity conditions , mental health issues , physical or intellectual impairment. We believe that library users should not be ‘disabled’ by technical, environmental or social conditions in libraries and urge all those who support this to join us to improve access for all.
