Requesting Library Materials in Alternate Formats
Student, staff, faculty, and community members with a print disability may request print library materials in alternate format, if they have a print disability. Staff will send the request for digitization through the ACE repository.
Accessible Content E-Portal (ACE) is a repository of accessible format texts available to users with print disabilities at participating Ontario Council of University Libraries (OCUL) institutions.
- The repository is a good resource for print library material that has already been digitized.
- Alternate formats include PDF, DAISY, TXT and ePUB.
- Please provide staff with as much information as possible about the book you are requesting.
- A unique token (password) is required to use the ACE repository. Tokens are available by emailing email@example.com. Tokens are valid for four academic years or for your time at Queen’s, whichever comes first.
Queen’s Library is a member of HathiTrust. Faculty, students, and staff have access to a digital archive of over 3 million items from research libraries around the world.
Queen's Library is able to provide access to most items in the HathiTrust Digital Library to users who have a print disability via the HathiTrust Accessible Text Request Service.
If you would like to request a HathiTrust item, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We will place a request on your behalf.
