Assistive Technology (AT): Accessible Study Rooms

The Assistive Technology (AT) Guide provides you with information about assistive software and training in the library.


There are currently restrictions on access to our spaces due to COVID-19 and the need for social distancing. 

Take a look at our Library Trail available online which enables you to explore what Kimberlin Library has to offer and includes photos and floor plans. We will re-open our spaces once we are able to do so safely and within Covid-19 guidelines.

How to book a Study Room

The library has six bookable Individual study rooms (KL00.08a-f) and two Accessible Study rooms (KL00.06 & KL00.07) for registered Assistive Technology users.

The Study Rooms can be booked online by DMU students. Your single Sign-On username and password are required. Walk-up bookings may also be made at the door of each study room for available slots.
