Alternative Format

Please follow these steps when requesting textbooks in alternate format:

  1. See whether you can purchase your book as an e-book, audio book, or other format that will work for you. If it is available in another format, consider purchasing the alternate format instead of a printed version.
  2. Check Bookshare ( to see if an alternate format of your book is available.
  3. If you aren’t able to get a text in an alternate format, purchase a hard copy of your textbook and save the receipt.
  4. Register your classes on the Accommodation Information Management (AIM) system.
  5. For books not found on Bookshare, enter your textbook requests in the AIM system using the documented process.
  6. Once the alternate format text is received by Disability & Accessibility Services, we will send an email with a link to the file on 'Google Drive.'
