I work at the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse in The ACCESS Center. I am working with a student who has a documented disability and needs the following book in an alternative format:
• Title: Education for Socially Engaged Art
• ISBN: 9781934978597
• Author: Helguera
• Publication Date: 2011
University of Wisconsin La Crosse is a university where all books are purchased and rented out and the ACCESS Center is where students with disabilities come for accommodations. I am requesting an electronic PDF version of the title above or requesting permission to scan the textbook. According to the 2011 Wisconsin Act 124 (106.57), (3)(2)(b) within 7 days after receipt of this request under sub (3) (2) (a) on behalf of a student with a disability for instructional material in alternative or electronic format, a publisher shall do one of the following:
1. Provide to the requester a copy of the instructional material in alternative format by delivering a computer disk or file.
2. Provide the requester access to the instructional material in alternative format by providing an Internet password or by providing that access in any other appropriate manner.
3. Provide to the requester a copy of the instructional material in electronic format.
4. At its option, grant to the institution of higher education permission to convert the instructional material into the particular format needed by the student with a disability.
5. If the publisher believes that is unable to act under subd. 1. to 4. because the publisher does not own or control some or all of the copyright in the instructional material, provide to the requester the name of the person that, to the best of the publisher’s knowledge, is able to fulfill the request.
The University of Wisconsin-La Crosse assures the following guidelines are being met to comply with the publishing company’s recommendations when providing printed material in an alternative format:
(1) Certifies that the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse has purchased the printed instructional material for use by a student with a disability or that a student with a disability attending or registered to attend the UW-L has purchased the printed instructional material.
(2) Certifies that the student has a disability that prevents him or her from using standard instructional materials.
(3) Certifies that the printed instructional material is for use by the student in connection with a course in which he or she is registered or enrolled in at the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse.
(4) Assures the student will use the electronic copy of the printed instructional material in specialized format sole for his or her own educational purposes.
(5) The University of Wisconsin-La Crosse will not copy or duplicate the printed instructional material for anyone other than those with a documented disability on file with The ACCESS Center office.
(6) If the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse permits a student to directly use the electronic version of an instructional material, the file shall be copy-protected and the material will be on a “Loan Only” basis and will be returned at the end of the semester
