Drill Hall Library Your library, your future

We're Social

Equality, Diversity and Inclusivity (EDI)

We aim to make our resources and services accessible to all Drill Hall Library users. Our web pages highlight the main ways in which we can help you with your studies, whether you need help using our assistive technology or reaching the books on our shelves. However, if you are unable to find the information you are looking for on these pages, please email the library's disability support team at, who will respond to you as quickly as possible.



A variety of software is available to assist with your studies, depending on which university you are registered with.

  • University of Kent: ClaroRead Pro
  • University of Greenwich: Read & Write Gold; Inspiration 9
  • CCCU: Read & Write Gold; Inspiration 9

All students can also access the standard Microsoft accessibility software from any PC.

In addition, we have PCs on two dedicated height-adjustable desks. Located in the Group Zone by the entrance to the C block corridor and in the Quiet Zone near Printer Mono 6/6D, both PCs have a scanner and a large-text keyboard. They also have the following software.
