Resources for Alternative Media
Getting your books in the appropriate media format is crucial to your academic success. Getting them quickly is also important.
If you are eligible for academic accommodations that include alternative media, please consider the following options before you submit a request to the DRC. You may save yourself time and money!
- Learning Ally
Accessible materials for individuals with Visual and learning disabilities. To begin the certification process go to https://www.learningally.org/
Bookshare.org is a national data base of news papers, articles and books. To sign up go to http://www.bookshare.org/signUpType
You can contact the publishers of your books directly by locating their information online. Publishers will have an ADA department that handles special alternative media orders.
- Websites for electronic books
Many web sites are offering books in electronic format. These books are often cheaper than purchasing the physical copy and are much easier to convert into audio format. Some popular sites include: www.amazon.com or https://www.cheaptextbooks.com
Eligible DRC students can sign up for any or all of these resources. The DRC is here to help if you have any questions on acquiring alternative media that works for you. The DRC does not require that you use any of these sites. These resources are provided as a convenience to assist you in locating and quickly obtaining your books and supplemental reading.
