Reader Services Policy

Reader Services Policy

Readers are offered to students that are eligible for reader services.  Typically readers are secured for texts that are unavailable through Learning Ally, the publisher, or too difficult to scan.  Reader services for exams are seldom used as students may be able to access exam materials via assistive technology.

Eligible students should notify DR in a timely manner if reader services are needed.  Students should not acquire reader services on their own without prior approval from DR.  DR is not responsible for compensating unapproved readers.

Role of a Reader:  The purpose of a reader is to provide access to print materials.  Readers are not available to offer interpretations or explanations for documents read.  Students should consult their professor for clarifications.
