Page address:

Students with documented print disabilities that need reading assistance can obtain textbooks and print materials in alternate formats. Eligibility for this accommodation is determined on an individualized basis. The following formats are available: audio, large print, Braille, and electronic (e-text).  Accessibility Resources collaborates with State Services for the Blind (SSB) and textbook publishers.



  1. Textbook information can be obtained online. (e.g. textbook title, author, ISBN) at the Barnes and Noble (campus) bookstore website.

  2. Requests are placed digitally at this link: Alternate Format Text 

  3. You may submit requests in advance but digital files will not be sent to you until we have proof of purchase (POP) for the textbook(s).  POP can beuploaded at the eform site or you can stop into our office and show receipts or the book itself at our front desk.

  4. If possible, submit your request in a timely manner as it may take up to 3 weeks to process.

  5. You will receive an email with the subject "You have a package waiting for you" when files have been uploaded. Go to the MoveitSecurely link in the email and login with your  StarID username/password to download and save the files to your computer.
