Searching for a coursebook and making a request

Search for an accessible book on Celianet by using the printed version’s ISBN. The ISBN identifies the book you need and helps you find the right version.

If you cannot find a coursebook, make an acquisition request

Upper secondary vocational students – or a representative of the school acting on behalf of a student – may submit acquisition requests for coursebooks that are compulsory for their degree. In some cases, individual books can be produced for preparatory studies for vocational training, for further training or for completing a separate vocational degree.
Acquisition requests can be submitted all year round. Production time for a coursebook is three months.

Go to the acquisition request. 

Please note that the following are not produced for vocational studies:

  • books that can be found in e-book format and are accessible using a listening or reading aid
  • coursebooks made into audiobooks read by a human voice
  • supplementary reading lists (books recommended by the course leader that are not coursebooks)
  • articles, hand-outs, or book excerpts
  • dictionaries, except in exceptional circumstances.

Accessible coursebook

As a rule, coursebooks produced on the basis of students’ acquisition requests are made into DaisyTrio books which are books with synchronised text and audio (synthetic voice). A DaisyTrio book can be listened to and read on a computer, tablet or smartphone screen at the same time.

In some cases, Luetus or Braille textbooks, for example, can be produced for students with visual impairments.
