Alternate formats for students with print disabilities
Campus disability services offices may request a digital file of a University of Massachusetts Press book that has been assigned to a student with a print disability. We will provide a PDF file if one is available, or a copy of the book to be converted into the format you need. If we do not have files or copies of the book, we will give you permission to convert the book you purchased into the required format. Please confirm that a copy of the book has been purchased by or on behalf of the student.
E-mail your request from an educational e-mail address to firstname.lastname@example.org or fax your request on department letterhead to 413-545-1226.
