The aim of this master thesis is to explore what role libraries play in the educational process for university students suffering from dyslexia. The question at issue is whether the library is able to meet the needs of students who have difficulty in using the libraries main resource, i.e. printed documents and information in written form. An often expressed view indicates that the modern library creates a lot of obstacles for dyslectic students. The method used is a literature study followed by an empirical study in which interviews were conducted with four students suffering from dyslexia and studying at two different universities and using different libraries. The literary study deals with the use of libraries by students and the varying forms of dyslexia and the ongoing research and resources dedicated to support people with dyslexia, both students and non-students. The results shows that the libraries, both libraries at universities and public libraries are a vital resource for students with dyslexia, and that the students interviewed are regular library users. The library is not a closed territory to the person who experiences difficulty in reading and writing, but a valuable resource. (Less)
