Free Subscription Information

In order to promote and encourage the appropriate use of our electronic books we are now offering free subscriptions, perhaps just for a limited time, to assistive technology professionals residing in the United States. We want you to be able to show students and teachers how they can benefit by having a subscription to the Accessible Book Collection.

To qualify for a free subscription the following questions need to all be answered with a "yes."

Do you work for a school system or similar entity?

Do you have responsibility for students in more than one school?

Do you train teachers in the use of assistive technology?

Is your email address associated with a school district or similar entity?

Are you a resident of the United States?

You may use this free subscription to evaluate its appropriateness for students. However, in order for a student to use material from our website, other than the initial evaluation, a paid subscription for the school the student attends must be acquired.

You may also use this subscription to train teachers in the use of materials found on our website so as to benefit their eligible students. You are not permitted share this subscription.

In order to obtain your free subscription, and for us to be able to manage the relatively large number of potential subscribers, please follow these instructions carefully when subscribing.

When you get to the page titled "Subscriber License" take particular note of the paragraph that reads as follows:

For example, a school district may subscribe for the purpose of training teachers in schools within their district. Additional Licenses for each school desiring to use the materials within the Licensor's Web site with their eligible students would be required. (Paragraph added 3-31-03)

After you agree to the Subscriber License you will be directed to a page that gives you three options on the type of subscriptions available. Choose the first option "Non-Profit or Government School."
