Hi Shahida,

The only difference might be that graduate students have lots of research that might not necessarily be tied to a particular class or textbook. We ask graduate students to produce a list of what's needed and prioritize items. Then, we do our best to procure reading materials in alternative formats that the student needs.

Hope this helps,

Good Morning All

Could those of you who deal with graduate students and their alternate format requests give me an idea of what your policies and procedures are concerning their readings. Any information would be greatly appreciated.

Best Regards
