NNELS is the National Network of Equitable Library Service, provided by the BC Libraries Cooperative, and developed with support from The Provincial and Territorial Public Library Council – Conseil provincial et territorial des bibliotheques.

Content is predominately popular fiction and non-fiction for adults, though there are some juvenile titles as well. Approximately 10,000 titles are currently available in the NNELS catalogue and most are in English; content in French and other languages is likely to become available later in 2014.

Content is selected through a legally-verified process and is based on requests from readers with print disabilities.

Most titles are in DAISY format, although there are some e-braille and e-text books.

Contact the Library at (604) 886-2130 to obtain a Self Declaration form verifying your disability, and start accessing NNELS.
