Accessibility Support

For assistance with finding or retrieving books and printing, photocopying or scanning journal articles:

Accessible Content E-Portal

The Accessible Content E-Portal (ACE) contains alternative formats of the print book collections of participating Ontario colleges and universities.

Access ACE:

  1. Eligible users can request a token by filling out the ACE token form.
    • other formats of this form available upon request
  2. Log-in to the ACE platform with your token to search for books.

How the ACE service works:

  • Only current Humber students and faculty who have a verified perceptual disability can request access to ACE.
  • Watch the getting started and searching the portal tutorials.
  • Contact Janet Hollingsworth, ACE Coordinator, if the library book you need is not available.

The ACE service does not digitize textbooks. Contact Accessible Learning Services if you require textbooks or other course materials in alternative formats.

ACE is managed by Scholars Portal, a service of the Ontario Council of University Libraries. This initiative is possible because the Canadian Copyright Act supports persons with perceptual disabilities.

DVDs and Streaming Videos

Check which DVDs and streaming videos are captioned:

  1. Use the Library's video search.
  2. Type "captioned" in the box.
  3. Browse the results list for what is available.

Contact staff at videonorth@humber.ca or videolake@humber.ca when:

  • You don't find what your're looking for.
  • Your required video is not captioned or another format is needed.
