Mae’r 11eg Mis Hanes Anabledd y Deyrnas Unedig yn cael ei gynnal o 18fed Tachwedd tan 18fed Rhagfyr. 

Mae ymgyrch eleni yn canolbwyntio ar hygyrchedd, ac mae’n ystyried faint o gynnydd a brofwyd a faint sydd ar ôl i’w gyflawni. 

Mae cydraddoldeb o ran cael mynediad at yr amgylchedd ffisegol a’r amgylchedd gwybodaeth yn rhywbeth y mae pobl anabl a’u cynghreiriaid wedi ymgyrchu drosto a chydnabyddir hyn fel hawl ddynol sylfaenol. 

Mae hygyrchedd cyffredinol yn sicrhau cyfranogiad, beth bynnag yw’r nam. 

Mae’r Brifysgol a’r Llyfrgell yn ymdrechu’n barhaus i ddefnyddio adnoddau ffisegol, synhwyraidd a thechnegol er mwyn gwella hygyrchedd cyffredinol.   

Gallwch chi ddod o hyd i wybodaeth ynghylch y mesurau er mwyn sicrhau bod gwasanaethau’r Llyfrgell yn hygyrch i bawb ar y dudalen Gwasanaethau Cynhwysol y Llyfrgell.    

Rydyn ni hefyd wedi llunio rhestr ddarllen sy’n tynnu sylw at adnoddau yn ein Llyfrgell sy’n ymwneud ag Anabledd. Mae’r rhain yn cynnwys atgofion a hunangofiannau, ffuglen a hanes anabledd, cyfnodolion a llyfrau am hawliau anabledd. Os oes gennych chi awgrymiadau ynghylch eitemau yn ein casgliadau y gellir eu hychwanegu at y rhestr hon, e-bostiwch ni yn:

The 11th UK Disability History Month runs from 18th November to 18th December.

The campaign this year is focussing on access, and considers how much progress has been made, and how much still needs to happen.

Equality of access to the physical and information environment is something disabled people and their allies have campaigned to achieve and is recognised as a fundamental human right.

Universal accessibility ensures participation, regardless of impairment.

The university and the library continuously strive to use physical, sensory and technical resources to improve universal accessibility.

You can find information about measures in place to make library services accessible to all on the Inclusive Library Services page.

We have also created a reading list which highlights resources related to Disability in our libraries.  These includes memoirs and autobiographies, Disability Fiction and Disability History, journals and books about Disability Rights.  If you have any suggestions of items in our collections that could be added to this list, please contact us at:
