The ABC Global Book Service, formerly known as the TIGAR Service, is an on-line catalogue that allows participating libraries for the blind and organizations serving people who are print disabled to obtain easily the accessible content they need.
The Service supports the goals of the Marrakesh VIP Treaty at a practical level. A participating library contributes its catalogue of accessible books and may request accessible digital books contributed by other organizations for the purpose of supplementing its collection. In those countries that have laws consistent with the Marrakesh VIP Treaty, such books can be transferred without requesting authorization of the copyright owner. For those countries that do not have such laws, ABC seeks authorization from the copyright owner prior to the transfer of requested books.Contact us
