If you are seeking an electronic format of a book or permission to scan it, please contact your campus DSS office. The DSS office is responsible for certifying student eligibility for accommodations and is typically the publisher's main point of contact.

Requests for electronic material for visually impaired and print-disabled students must be made via RNIB Bookshare (formerly Load2Learn). Bookshare is a charity online database run by the Royal National Institute for the Blind that provides educational materials free of charge to VIP students in the UK. Please note that requests are accepted only from educational institutions on behalf of individual students.
If Bookshare are unable to fulfill your request, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org with the completed VIP permissions form attached. [Go to the bottom of this page to download the VIP permissions form: https://www.hoddereducation.co.uk/RightsandPermissions.] Email requests currently have a processing time of between four and six weeks, and there will be a charge to reflect the costs we incur in supplying files.
Please note that the file we provide is a standard PDF format. We do not produce Braille or large print copies, but we permit visually-impaired persons and affiliate organizations to create accessible copies of the text to suit individual needs.
