How can I access alternate formats for library material?

If you require alternate formats for materials held in the AC Library collection, the Library will provide an accessible format of print, digital or multimedia resources upon request. Follow the instructions below for each type of material you need:

  • For course textbooks: Contact Accessible Print-Based Services (APBS).
  • For print library books: Contact the Library to request access to the Accessible Content E-portal (ACE). ACE is a repository of books in accessible formats, which is managed by Scholar’s Portal, a service of the Ontario Council of University Libraries. ACE provides books in the following formats: colour PDF, black & white PDF, DAISY, plain text and e-pub. Please note that ACE is accessible to current students and employees only and may only be accessed by users with a declared perceptual disability. If you require access to ACE or if you are a user who fulfills the above criteria, please contact Jennifer Vanderburg at for further assistance.
