Can books be downloaded for ALL students, not just learners with a print disability? Unfortunately, copyright law only allows us to provide accessible copies to learners who are disabled, so please do not share files with other students.

Try contacting the publisher of the textbooks you need because many offer free digital resources. We are investigating what's available from publishers and will share our findings soon.

Books for All learners at home - books can be downloaded from the database and given to parents or carers for learners to use at home. We suggest that teachers who do this should keep a record of the book and the learner to whom the book has been given. Books are for use by the learner only and must not be shared or made available on the internet etc. Refer to Copyright and regulations to find out what you can and cannot do.
