How to Request Your Alternative Text Formats

Alternative Textbook Formats

If you have been approved for alternative textbook formats this section will show up on the left-hand side of your account. Within myAccess, you can select and request specific books to be converted. You can also track the status of the book requests that you have made.  

Submitting Requests for Texts to be Converted
  • Log in to your myAccess profile.
  • On the left hand bar in the “My Accommodations” Menu, click on ‘Alternative Formats.’
  • This will take you to a page that lists textbooks for your courses.
  • Request the books that you need to have converted by clicking on “Select” in the right column.
  • The system will automatically update in a new table showing that the book request is processing.
  • After you provide receipts to the Disability Center, it will show “Yes” in the receipt (RCPT) column.
Submit Additional Request for Text not listed in system
  • Log in to your myAccess profile.
  • On the left hand bar in the “My Accommodations” Menu, click on ‘Alternative Formats.’
  • Scroll down below the list of texts. There is a multi-field form that asks you to indicate what class the text is for, the title, author, ISBN, publisher and other fields. Complete the form with as much information as possible.
  • Submit the additional text.
  • Upon submission, the text will show in the list of needed materials. It will have a “custom – not listed” status next to it. This status indicates that you, the student, entered in the book information as opposed to the textbook information that is generated from the Mizzou bookstore. 

If you have questions about your Alternative Formats please contact Stacy Sarabia at mudcbooks@missouri.edu
