The two collections

The RNIB Bookshare education collection requires the educational organisation to create the primary account, members of staff (Sponsors) can then be added to the account along with learners (Members). Our collection contains thousands of accessible books, textbooks and images to support the UK curriculum.

Can I restrict my child's access to certain titles?

UK education collection tags some books as "adult content," which depict extreme violence or explicit sexual content.  Those books are not available to readers under 18, or adult readers who "opt out" of seeing adult content in their searches.

Qualifying disabilities are disabilities with a physical basis that severely inhibit or prevent an individual from reading standard print. This may be a visual impairment or blindness, a severe learning disability that affects reading, or a physical ability that affects one's ability to hold a book or turn pages.

The default number of downloads per 30 days is 100 books.

The book download limit is based on a 30 day cycle that starts on the day you download your first book. If for example, your download is 100, and 100 books were downloaded on day 1, additional books wouldn’t be available until day 31.
