Alternative Formats Service

Exceptions under copyright legislation  make it possible for us to source and create materials in alternative formats to make them accessible.

This can be useful to people with disabilities such as visual impairments, dyslexia, or a physical impairment which prevents them from manually handling printed materials.

Who is it for?

This service is for disabled students and staff who have difficulties with print and other materials.  We can provide many different alternative formats specific to your individual needs.  We can only make accessible copies from books you have lawful access to, for example, if we hold them in stock, or you purchase a copy.  If you need something we don't hold please contact us for help.

Where and when?

This service involves some discussion, so we would prefer to meet you to discuss your individual needs.  Please email your faculty librarian or library@port.ac.uk to request an appointment.
