Accessible Document Converter

Go to the accessible document converter. SensusAccess converts documents into a range of alternate and accessible formats including digital Braille, MP3, DAISY and e-books. The service can also be used to convert inaccessible documents such as image-only PDF files, images, and PowerPoint presentations into more accessible formats.

Renew materials

Renew Reed materials online. Select individual loans to renew, or select ‘renew all’. Note that all library fines are waived from Saturday, March 14 through the end of spring semester. Replacement fees are still in effect. You might see a fine on your library account, but it will not be sent to the business office and you do not need to pay it.
