University of Pittsburgh Press can assist accessibility offices at institutions of higher learning by providing access to books for students who have disabilities that prevent them from using these books in printed form. We can provide alternative access in cases where we have electronic files for these books available through our Chicago Distribution Center’s BiblioVault system.
If you are an accessibility official for a college or university, you can find out if an electronic version of a book might be available from BiblioVault by searching for the title, author or ISBN in the search box above right (in the right-side navigation on this page). Please keep in mind that if a book is not in BiblioVault, we cannot provide electronic files for it, and also that not all books in BiblioVault have files suitable for disability use.
If you find that a book you need is included in BiblioVault, please choose the “Request accessible file” link you’ll find on the book page. BiblioVault will fulfill the request as quickly as possible, although we cannot guarantee that you will receive files in less than two weeks.
BiblioVault may need to bill your accessibility office a service fee, to cover the cost of preparing the file and transmitting it if you cannot accept a file via email. For instance, we generally charge $10.00 + shipping costs for delivery on a CD.
For more information, or to check on the status of a request, please email email@example.com
