Alabama Instructional Resource Center for the Blind

Alabama Instructional Resource Center for the Blind (AIRCB) is located on the campus of the Alabama School for the Blind (ASB). The AIRCB is comprised of three programs: ASB Library, Subregional Library for the Blind and Physically Handicapped, and the Instructional Resource Center. AIRCB provides Braille and large print textbooks, educational materials, and equipment designed and adapted specifically for individuals with vision loss who are enrolled in Alabama’s public, private, and home-schooled programs, as well as students and clients of AIDB and ADRS.

AIRCB operates a Braille and large print production service for textbooks, manuals, and other printed materials. When Braille and large print textbooks are not available for purchase from special media vendors, they are produced at the AIRCB by Library of Congress-certified Literary and Nemeth Braille transcribers.
