Book Orders

Please submit your AEM orders for the 2024-2025 school year on the ICAM. Getting orders in now helps to ensure your students will have their educational materials on time when school begins next year. Find more information regarding ordering large print and braille instructional materials as well as supplies and equipment on the ICAM for your students who are blind or have low vision.
Please contact our IERC staff if you have any questions regarding the ordering process.

IERC Annual Inventory

The Annual Inventory Recall/Reallocation process is conducted by the IERC each spring account for borrowed materials still in use and to effectively reuse textbooks and equipment. Annual Inventory information will be disseminated for completion. Please complete the annual inventory process by the end of the school year. If you need assistance or have questions, please call, or email Martha LaBounty at

Returning IERC Loan Materials

All materials not designated for reassign or renewal for the next school year must be returned to the IERC no later than July 1. Please return to our new location.
When shipping textbooks and equipment to the IERC, please use the following guidelines:
* Enclose an  Inventory Return Form indicating what items are in each box. Please identify any discrepancies on the form, i.e., volumes/parts lost, consumed, or damaged.
* Enclose an  Equipment Repair Form with returned equipment that needs to be repaired.
* If returning books in more than one box, please number the outside of the boxes, i.e., Box 1 of 6, along with your name and district, and put volumes in order.
* Ship materials via Free Matter for the Blind. For your convenience, return  Free Matter for the Blind mailing labels  here .
* Please be sure to complete the return address as this helps us sort incoming materials that come off the mail truck.
* Return technology under a signed loan agreement via a trackable carrier and insured, per the agreement. (i.e., APH SmartBraillers, MATT Connects, Jupiter Portable Magnifiers) per the loan agreement.
* Return all loaned professional publications.
As always, thanks for your time and assistance in completing this very important procedure.

Special Request

If you search the ICAM for an item and your results are unsuccessful, you may place a Special Request for that item. Select Special Request and enter data or after you have searched the ICAM with the APH catalog number, you will have the option to place a “Special Request".

Delivery Confirmation Process
Be sure to login to the ICAM as soon as you receive materials from the IERC to confirm your delivery.

Duplicate Student Error Message on the ICAM
If you have a student who has moved into your system and has already been registered in the ICAM, do not attempt to reregister them. Instead, update the student information using the Edit Student function. If you attempt to reregister a student already in the system, you will receive a “Duplicate Student” error message

If you need additional assistance or information, do not hesitate to contact the IERC staff at 800-833-2198 or via email. Please explore the IERC Policies and Procedures found in the right side menu.
