E-text Support Requests
The Alternative Media Production (AMP) team provides Alternative Media and E-texts for printed textbooks when an accessible option is not readily available. The AMP will only produce E-texts when the University Bookstore does not provide a digital option, or the print book does not include a digital copy. The AMP team, as part of the ATLC, helps to provide support for digital textbooks through workshops, drop-ins, one-on-ones, and creating instructional materials.
Students that have a print disability and do not currently have access to a Bookshare account should schedule a one-on-one AT intake appointment. If you would like to discuss E-text\alternative media requests, you can schedule a one-on-one AT support appointment.
Bookshare is an e-book library funded by the U.S. Department of Education, Office of Special Education Programs (OSEP). This service is available only for individuals who have a qualifying reading or perceptual disability, a visual impairment, or a physical disability that affects their ability to read printed works. Books obtained from this library do not require a purchase to be made. For more information or to create an account for Bookshare please schedule a one-on-one AT intake appointment.
Note that not all textbooks are available through Bookshare. For E-text requests, the AMP team labels the books it finds on Bookshare on the OSD Online Services in the Alternative Formats section so that you can download them at your convenience.
