If you encounter digital material on our website that you are not able to access in its current format, we can modify or change that material
to make it accessible and usable for you.
For those with a qualifying disability
If you have a qualifying disability that prevents you from reading or using print materials, we will work to get an accessible copy of any item you wish to use from the library.
You can also request scans
of print items in our collection and make a note in your request if you qualify and need more than one chapter.
To use these services, you must be certified by a competent authority as being unable to read or use standard print material as a result of your disability. This may include the following conditions:
- Having a visual disability in which your corrective lenses prevent you from reading printed material.
- Having a physical disability that prevents you from using printed material.
- Having a reading disability that prevents you from reading printed material.
Who determines eligibility?
At the University of Michigan, the following two offices are the best starting point if you have a disability and would benefit from these and other accommodations.
These offices maintain confidentiality and work with other competent authorities such as doctors, nurses, and therapists.
Librarians may determine eligibility in some cases.
