Books for All Database
The Books for All Database enables teachers and other education practitioners to search for and download books and other printed materials in adapted, accessible formats for print disabled pupils.
Anyone can search the database, but to download books you need to log on through:
The resources on the database are Accessible Copies of copyright books and works. These Accessible Copies are shared under the terms and conditions of the CLA Print Disability licence. The resources can only be used by pupils who are visually impaired or otherwise disabled and by reason of such visual impairment or disability are unable to read or access the original printed book.
To log in with Scran:
When you go to the database, Scran should recognise your computer and you should see a drop down list of schools - select your school and that will log you in.
If you don't see a dropdown menu of schools in your local authority, PLEASE LET SCRAN KNOW by either phoning (0131 662 1456) or emailing email@example.com.
You can help even more by sending your school's IP address when you email. To find this out, go to the 'SCRAN IP check' website page where you'll see a phrase of letters and numbers. Copy and paste this in an email to Scran and we should be able to sort out your automatic access quickly and easily.
Scottish Local Authority teachers, in primary, secondary and special schools, can have free at home access to Scran and therefore to the database. To sign up, go to Scran Shop and fill out the online form.
