Cengage provides files to the National Instructional Materials Access Center (NIMAC) for use by U.S. K-12 institutions. Please visit NIMAC for information on how to receive files in .nimas format.

If you require one of these formats, please complete the form and we will grant permission to convert our e-files into a format that is accessible to your student or instructor.

Please see Cengage’s Accessibility Page for more information on accessibility at Cengage.
