Textbooks and Course Readers

Finding or creating an accessible textbooks or converting course packets of photocopies to an accessible format can be very time-consuming. In order to manage the volume of requests and provide equal timely access, students need the cooperation of faculty and the DPRC.

Textbooks

Please submit yourtextbook orders to the SF State Bookstore by the Provost's deadline to allow sufficient time for the DPRC Accessible Media Coordinator to obtain electronic copies and modify them as needed. This deadline is generally mid-October for the Spring semester and mid-April for the Fall Semester in accordance with the Academic Senate Timely Adoption Policy.

Course Readers

Please ensure that your Course Reader source materials are in a clean, legible format for photocopying. If you are scanning course materials for distribution, please review our Photocopy Guidelines.
