Alternate Format Books

Students approved for books in alternate format must submit an email request for any books that will be needed for the upcoming term. That request should be sent to [email protected] and should include the following information for each book you are requesting:

  • Title
  • Author
  • Edition (if applicable)
  • isbn (10 or 13 digit number found above or below the bar code on the rear cover)

Requests often take as long as two weeks to fulfill, and students must own a physical copy of the textbook and/or possess other curriculum handouts, course readers, etc. (receipts for materials are required in some circumstances). By submitting an alternate format book request, the student is affirming that all supplied materials will be handled appropriately, and any materials provided by SDS may not be copied, shared, or distributed in any manner that violates copyright law.

Please contact SDS directly if you have any questions regarding alternate format materials, or if you are interested in reading software or training.
