Access and inclusion

The Library aims to go beyond compliance in providing accessible physical and digital infrastructure and inclusive services.

It is the Library’s intention that everyone feels equally welcomed and can access with dignity the information or service they are interested in. Any feedback or suggestions as to how the Library can be more inclusive is welcome and can be submitted using the Library's feedback form.
