Library and Knowledge Services

ULHT Library and Knowledge Services (LKS) is committed to supporting users who have different accessibility requirements to ensure that they are not disadvantaged when accessing services. 

General information about the Hospital sites can be found on the AccessAble website. Information about how to access the Grantham, Pilgrim and Lincoln LKS buildings can be found on the My Library pages. Although every effort is made to ensure that physical access is as easy as possible, the layout of some parts of these buildings may make them difficult for users to access (for example, some of our entrance doors are heavy and assistance may be required).

Assistance dogs are welcome at the LKS sites. 

Assistance for users with different accessibility requirements is available during staffed hours. Contact details and staffed hours are clearly displayed online and outside each LKS entrance. 

If you would like assistance with getting books from the shelves just ask a member of staff. Kick stools are also available.

If you have a visual impairment or find a keyboard or mouse hard to use then let a member of staff know and we can adjust your computer so that it is easier for you to use.

All of our guides are available as large print versions upon request.

Coloured paper is available for printing.
