Welcome, Authorized Users

Authorized Users (AUs) are designated by the NIMAC State Coordinator, who registers each AU in the NIMAC online system. AUs can search and download files from the NIMAC, and assign files for download by registered Accessible Media Producers.

When the SC enters a new AU registration, the system automatically sends a NIMAC Limitation of Use Agreement (LUA) to the email address entered for the authorized user. When you receive the LUA, just initial each page, fill out the appropriate AU section(s) at the end of the document, and return it to us.

You are welcome to email us a scan of the complete document at nimac@aph.org.

Or, if you prefer, you can mail a hard copy to:

National Instructional Materials Access Center
1839 Frankfort Ave.
Louisville, KY 40206-0085

When we receive the signed LUA, your account will be activated and you will receive your user ID and password information in two automated emails.

You can then log in to the NIMAC, search and download files, or assign files to an Accessible Media Producer (AMP).

If you would like your AMPs to be able to download NIMAS files directly, you can invite them to register with NIMAC. AMP accounts are provided free of charge as a convenience to those working with NIMAS. Alternatively, you can download the files yourself, then burn them to CD or DVD and send the disc to the AMP.
