Internet Archive expands access to millions of books for people with disabilities


Now, disabled users that are certified by a growing number of organizations can borrow hundreds of thousands of modern books and download mostly older books all for free.

Individuals that are already a qualified user of  NLS-BARD, Bookshare, or Ontario Council of University Libraries Scholar’s Portal (ACE)  can link their archive.org accounts and gain access.

Individuals that are are affiliated with any of these organizations can contact them to authorize their archive.org account for print-disabled access.

Individuals can also request verification for free by filling in this form to contact the Vermont Mutual Aid Society.

We welcome other organizations, such as libraries, schools, hospitals, and dedicated service organizations to join in this free program to certify users for access and also get full access to digital books for further remediation.

If you have questions or suggestions about this program, please contact the Internet Archive. We are excited to be able to offer these services to the print-disabled community.
