The IERC is a statewide, centralized depository of specialized formats for school-age students who are blind or visually impaired enrolled in local education agencies. These formats include braille and large print instructional materials, as well as tangible aids and equipment specifically designed for use by students with visual impairments.
The IERC collaborates with the PATINS Project, Indiana Center for Accessible Materials (ICAM) for the provision of services. Request for instructional materials, for school-age students who are blind or have low vision, are submitted to the ICAM by the LEA appointed Digital Right’s Managers (DRM) and are processed by the IERC. All materials are provided at no cost to eligible students and are on loan to the ordering local education agencies. In addition to the centralized, statewide depository, the IERC also houses and manages a Braille Transcription Project and oversees the Miami Accessible Media Project located at the Miami Correctional Facility in Bunker Hill, Indiana.
