When you pick up the book in alternate form, you will need to have the book or proof of ownership.  The form asks for a telephone number or email address which will be used to notify you when your book is ready.  If you give us an email, you will also get a confirmation email for your request.  We take no responsibility for ensuring that you get these messages.  If you believe you have missed a message or would like to check on the status of your request, please stop by the Assistive Technology Office in RCF 345.
