Our mission is to assist Indiana's Local Education Agencies (LEAs) in meeting the NIMAS regulations of the IDEA reauthorization of 2004 by securing accessible textbooks and core curriculum materials in specialized formats in a timely manner, for students with a documented print disability.

  • The ICAM system is owned, maintained, and provided to all Indiana schools by the Office of the Associate Superintendent, the Indiana Department of Education. Access to the system, technical support, and professional training are provided through the ICAM and PATINS projects without a fee.

    Project Overview:

    In October 2006, the Indiana Department of Education, Department of Special Education, established a grant to fund the Indiana Center for Accessible Materials (ICAM) Project with the mandate to provide a state repository to coordinate with the National Instructional Materials Center (NIMAC) for obtaining accessible textbooks and core instructional materials, in the National Instructional Materials Accessibility Standard (NIMAS), for use by students with print disabilities. 

    The NIMAC, in Louisville, Kentucky, will receive and catalog publishers' electronic files of print instructional materials in a standard format: the NIMAS. The center will provide these standardized files to those who have been authorized by states to obtain the files to produce textbooks and other core print instructional materials for students who are blind, visually impaired and print-disabled. 

    The PATINS Project, located at the Central Indiana Education Service Center (CIESC), has been appointed by the Indiana Department of Education, to serve as the oversight agency for the ICAM operations and as the authorized agency for coordinating with the NIMAC for the state and its local educational agencies.

    ICAM services are available to Indiana educational agencies at no cost, and the staff will work to assist Indiana’s educational agencies in building their capacity to provide access to print instructional materials in specialized formats for the student who has been determined as having a print disability.

    ICAM Services to Local Education Agencies:

    • Offer training and technical assistance on accessible technology tools and the use of accessible content in curriculum delivery.

    • Serve as a state repository for textbooks and core curriculum instructional material in specialized formats and tangibles for K – 12 students with qualifying print disabilities.

    • Fulfill requests for accessible formats of textbooks and core curriculum instructional materials in a timely manner.

    • Utilize a statewide tracking system.

    • Assure protection of copyrighted material.

    • Report statewide data on ICAM requests to the Indiana Department of Education (IDOE).

  • DRM Registration by Superintendents

    IDOE guidelines allow a maximum of five Digital Rights Managers (DRMs) per school corporation; charter schools are allowed three DRMs per school.

    To register a new DRM, a superintendent, or that superintendent’s designee, needs to complete this form in order to add up to five DRMs. It is also important to remove any DRMs who are no longer in service by filling out the Remove DRM section at the bottom of the same form.
