Alternate Formats Collection for Students with Print Disabilities

Alternate Formats Collection Catalogue

The Alternate Formats Collection catalogue is a listing of alternate format materials housed in the collection on the 2nd floor of 1181 Portage Avenue, Winnipeg. Alternate formats include braille, large print, audiobooks (MP3 download or CD) and electronic text (PDF, Word and Epub files). These materials are produced to supplement or replace regular print text for students who have been assessed as having a print disability. Materials are available only to eligible students.

Materials not available in our collection may be available for loan through our interlibrary loan agreement with The Canadian Association of Educational Resource Centres for Alternate Format Materials (CAER).

Resource teachers and eligible students must be registered with the Alternate Formats Collection in order to borrow material.

Orders can be placed by using the online request form or by emailing or phoning the contact below.
