Locating Alternative Formats
Alternative format material is usually a book or print item that has been produced in another format such as Braille, Moon, Large Print, Giant Print, audio CD or cassette, etc.
The RNIB maintains a searchable database of accessible alternative format resources, formerly known as Revealweb. This database is now part of UnityUK and may be accessed through WorldCat.
The Bee Aware Scheme is a national initiative to promote the inter library loan of alternative format material on behalf of visually impaired and print disabled people. The North West Libraries Interlending Partnership website contains full details of the Bee Aware Scheme, along with further information about alternative format materials and resources.
