Sage extends Load2Learn partnership

Share this on social media:

Sage has announced an extended partnership with the Load2Learn initiative, delivered by the Royal National Institute of Blind People (RNIB) and Dyslexia Action to provide books in an accessible format for the visually impaired and print disabled. The partnership will enable all registered users access to more than 2,000 Sage books from a range of disciplines.

Load2Learn is a free service, for use by staff who are supporting learners in the UK, that have a print disability. The scheme enables learners who cannot read standard print, including those with dyslexia and who are blind or partially sighted, to read the same books at the same time as their classmates – thus providing the same educational opportunities.

Due to the support of publishing partners, and registered users contributing resources to share with other users of Load2Learn, the scheme is able to provide this service to print-disabled learners at no extra cost. The partnership with Sage will add the largest number of books from any single publisher to the Load2Learn platform, enabling access quickly and efficiently to a wide diversity of high quality educational resources from leading authors.
 
Huw Alexander, digital sales manager at Sage, said: 'Since Sage’s founding in 1965, a key part of our publishing mission has been to ensure global access to leading scholarship and education. Access to educational material is one of the fundamental parts of a healthy society.

'We are delighted to be extending our partnership with the Load2Learn scheme enhancing our joint vision of supporting the academic and student community, and assisting in our joint goal to support learning without limits.'
