Resources for Reading, Listening to Books on CD, and Watching DVDs

It’s summertime, and perhaps your life slows down a bit. 
Maybe you have a few more minutes to read for pleasure, listen to books on CD, or watch a few films. 
If that’s the case, the University Libraries want to remind you about some resources that might be of interest.  We have  audio books on CD, a current literature collection, and a paperback collection.  We also have several thousand entertainment DVDS available for the University community (students, faculty, staff) and members of the Friends of the UNCG Libraries.  All are available in the Jackson Library Reading Room on the first floor of Jackson Library, where they may be checked out.  You can come and browse or search our catalog, where searches may be limited to formats such as video, audio book on CD, current literature, and paperback.

If your interest is in audiobooks, Recorded Books will offer a patron-focused webinar that demonstrates the features of its OneClickDigital Books Downloadable Audio service, available to patrons of the University Libraries and North Carolina public libraries from NC Live. This 45-minute program includes a complete tour of the service and shows patrons how to create an account, install the OneClickdigital Media Manager, search for content, manage checkouts, and download and transfer audiobooks to listening devices.   You can access the service here.
