Upfront

Alliant International University has partnered with the online library www.bookshare.org to offer 50 psychology textbooks that can be downloaded into text-reading or digital Braille software. Disabled students can access the texts free of charge; disabled faculty members and others pay $50 a year for the service.

The university is also seeking donations of current-edition or classic psychology texts in good condition. To donate, mail books to Nina Ghiselli, 1 Beach St., Suite 100, San Francisco, CA 94133.
