Students registered with SASS - Academic Accommodations may benefit from additional library services, including alternate formats and adaptive technology.

Alternate formats

The majority of our books and journals are available in electronic format. The easiest way to search for them is by using the catalogue. You can also request a book in an alternate format (electronic or print).

We also have book collections for students who have a disability. These are available in various formats: PDF, DAISY text files, ePub and audio mp3. Request an access code at

Screen reading and writing software is available in different library locations. You can also use one of our book scanners to convert text into speech.
