How can I submit my Organization Agreement remotely?
After creating a new organizational Bookshare account online, typically the person who created the account (whom we call the Primary Contact) would be required to print, sign, scan and return an Organization Agreement form. However, in recognition of the extraordinary circumstances created by the coronavirus, we are offering a temporary work-around for completing the agreement. We are allowing authorized staff to sign via email as outlined below.
The Primary Contact on the account should send an email to OrgAgreement@bookshare.org from an email account clearly associated with your school or district, and include the following:
1. The statement below confirming your authority and signature
2. Your contact information as noted below
3. Please download and attach the blank Organization Agreement to your email. (That is necessary so that it is clear to our auditors that you were aware of what you were signing; you do not need to print or complete the printed agreement form at this time, but please read through it.)
Once we receive your email with these items, we will approve your account as quickly as possible so that you can begin downloading Bookshare books for your qualified students.
Please include this language in the body of your email:
By virtue of this email, I am agreeing to the full terms stated in the attached Bookshare Organization Agreement. I certify that I have the authority to sign this document on behalf of my organization, and I agree to submit a signed copy of this agreement to Bookshare as soon as reasonably possible after my organization resumes regular activity.
Please include your full contact information in the email, including your Name, Title/Role, Organization, City, State, Work Phone Number and Work Email Address.
If you need additional assistance, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
