We provide assistance for the creation of textbooks, instructional materials, and other printed information converted to alternate formats such as Braille, large print, or electronic text.
Students must be authorized to receive textbooks in an alternate format (i.e. e-text, Braille, large print) by their DSPS Counselor.
If this accommodation has been authorized for you, the following process must be utilized for receiving the alternate media:
As soon as possible after registering for an upcoming semester, you will need to complete an Alternate Media Request form for each textbook. Book information can be obtained from the booklist if available for that semester.
Otherwise, you can meet with the Bookstore Manager or instructor to get the book title, author, ISBN#, etc. on each form.
You should also bring any class materials (ie: syllabus, handouts) you have available when turning in the Alternate Media Request forms.
In addition to the Alternate Media Request forms, you will also be required to sign and agree to the Alternate Media Policies and Procedures.
Alternate Media will be requested from the Alternate Text Production Center (ATPC).
Once alternate media is received, formatted, and labeled, it will be available for student to pick up from the Alternate Media staff.
You must provide proof that you have purchased the book before the alternate media can be released to you. If you plan to purchase a used book, please contact the Alternate Media staff (661) 395-4686 for instructions on obtaining a receipt.
