Become a Bookshare Technology Partner

API v1

Every day Bookshare changes the lives of individuals with print disabilities, but we can't do it alone. We rely on our Technology Partners to build accessible applications that meet the needs of a segment of our audience.  For that reason Bookshare provides a free API to integrate into accessible applications.  

Becoming a Technology Partner is easy:

  1. Design an accessible application on any platform that reads Bookshare files
  2. Email us the idea at and we will issue you an API key
  3. Submit the tool for review after integration and join our Technology Partner family

Bookshare is currently developing a replacement to the current API enpoints.  This includes a new User Authentication process (OAuth) which can be used with API v1 calls.  If you would like to participate in the API v2 beta please email
