The University of Cyprus Library aims to render all its services and sources available to all users. It tries to predict and satisfy the special reading needs of print-disabled students, that is with a difficulty or inability to read printed material due a visual, physical, perceptual or learning disability, contributing in the development of a comprehensive learning environment at the University of Cyprus.

Before the beginning of every academic semester, the Library converts instructional material to a format that makes it accessible to print-disabled users – provided that instructors inform the Library and send the material in advance.
