About the collection

The Resource Library is a digital and traditional library collection of spinal cord injury and disability related materials containing books, reports, papers, articles, information sheets, factsheets, DVDs, websites and forums. Online materials can be downloaded or accessed straight away and publications such as books can be borrowed from the library. Simply browse the collection online and if you would like to borrow an item we will post the book, publication or DVD straight to you.

We aim to make this collection as comprehensive as possible so if you know about a resource that we don't yet, please drop us a line to the let us know in "Suggest a Resource". (Note that you need to be logged in to the Library to use "Suggest a Resource".)
