Note to libraries

CELA statistics have moved to Log in to your ILL account (as you would to order books) to view a link called “Statistics”.

CELA Patron registration service

Your library can easily offer over 800,000 items in accessible formats to your patrons with print disabilities! Use this site to register eligible patrons for CELA service and receive statistics about your use of CELA services.

How it works

Once we receive the registration form:

  • If the patron has indicated they want an online service, we send their user name and password by email
  • If the patron wants Direct to Player or DAISY CD service we will send them:
    • Two popular starter books and an audio magazine CD, and
    • A welcome message (email or audio) explaining how to order more books online or connect with the CELA Helpline to tell us their book interests so that we can automatically send them new books regularly.
  • We will call all children and braille users to set up their service. 

First time user

Select “Library sign-up” and enter your library’s CELA ILL account number. If you do not have an ILL account number or cannot remember it, contact CELA Member Services at or 1-855-655-2273.

Patron registration

Sign in with your CELA ILL account number and password. You will go directly to the patron sign-up page.

If your patron can use a computer, they can self-register for CELA service.
