  • Alternate Formats Service

    The Library provides an alternate formats service for students referred to us by Disability Services. The service will scan and convert key recommended readings (chapters or articles) or obtain full textbooks from RNIB Bookshare or directly from the publisher in an accessible format.

    Please note - the Library must hold a print or ebook copy of the text before we can scan / request an accessible version from a publisher.
