With a 218% rise in students with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) enrolling at QUB over the last 5 years, the Library needs to be a welcoming environment for them and asking some students to make a film about the most important elements of the Library for them seemed to be a good start. ‘My Library, My Space’ was a collaborative project between Library Services, Video Production and Disability Services, working together to facilitate the making of the film. More importantly, it was a student-led project, as four students decided topics to cover and either acted or filmed the whole process. The result is a very natural and engaging introduction to the Library which will benefit both current and potential students whether they have ASD or not.
