The Textbook Market is Changing Fast

We created the AccessText Resource Center to help service providers, students, faculty, and publishers find the products, services, and up-to-date accessibility information they need.

The Resource Center is available to everyone. No membership required!

Resources

The Accessible Textbook Finder searches multiple vendors by ISBN or title, and provides the combined results with links to the source. Each vendor has their own policies and accessibility features.
