National Digital Library Services for the Blind- NDLSB

Welcome to the National Digital Library Service for the Blind (NDLSB). This is a portal created by the National Library of Jamaica (NLJ) for blind persons and the sighted persons who assist them.

The NDLSB portal dramatically increases the accessibility of books. NDLSB believes that Jamaicans with disabilities deserve the same ease of access to books and periodicals that people without disabilities enjoy.

Digital Talking Books

Digital Talking Books inside this portal contain titles created by the National Library of Jamaica. Some titles have been made available to us by our global partners participating in the Trusted Intermediary Globally Accessible Resources (TIGAR) portal.

The resources within this portal are restricted to persons registered as Blind with the Jamaica Society for the Blind

The TIGAR Project

The National Library of Jamaica is now part of an established network of trusted intermediaries (TIs) that are exchanging electronic files of books across borders in accessible formats in a systemized manner using an agreed framework for copyright clearance.
