These files are used to create accessible versions of textbooks. Students are encouraged to join the AccessText mailing list to receive future announcements on student resources. If you are a student interested in receiving alternative (electronic) textbooks in college, contact the disability service provider at your college to see if they are an AccessText member. Please Note: You must meet the qualification of having a print-related (ex. mobility, visual and/or reading) disability in order to receive AccessText services.
