Students with learning disabilities have the right to extra pedagogical support. The libraries have an extended responsibility for pedadogical support regarding litterature, especially talking books. See the linked guide below to read more on talking books.
The libraries at LU offer a basic supply of services for students with learning disabilities. All faculty libraries have so called "contact libarians" with extra responsibility for this support. The contect librarians meet with all the new student with leasning disabilities to have an introduction to the services. If you have questions about the libraries support, please contact your own faculty library (see the link below for a list of all libraries).
The basic supply of services include:
- Registering the student in the MTM-service Legimus for downloading of talking books
- Informning about downloading, reading programs, autocorrection programs, and more
- Ordering readings of coursebooks from MTM
- Ordering readings of other material from local voice readers
- Offer autocorrection programs
- Offer technical support, either as workshops, through private meetings or via e-guides, according to the student's needs
- Initiate dialogue with teachers about availability routines surrounding course books and litterature
- Offer library information in English
