Agreement and Signature
I acknowledge that I have a perceptual disability as defined under the Copyright Act and that I may be called upon to provide proof of such disability from a competent authority.
In the case of a temporary perceptual disability, I am required to provide written notification to my public library when I am no longer limited by a perceptual disability from utilizing conventional print material. At such time I will no longer have access to the NNELS collection.
NNELS material is restricted to personal use only. I will not modify, distribute, repackage, transmit, sell or otherwise use copyright material which is inconsistent with the rights of copyright owners.
I acknowledge and agree to these terms and conditions.
