On April 15, 2010, NC LIVE began offering a new collection of downloadable audio books via Ingram Digital’s MyiLibrary Audio Book Platform. The initial collection contained 750 titles, focusing primarily on language learning, history, biography, and classic literature. The eAudio content is downloadable to either an iPod or MP3 player, and playable on a PC or Mac computer.
On Friday, May 14, NC LIVE added the second installment of downloadable audio books to it’s new collection. As with the previous installment, new titles were made available with a LSTA grant from the State Library of North Carolina. The second installment includes approximately 250 new titles, as well as additional copies of previously owned content. The collection now contains nearly 1300 copies of audio books.
Each audio book user will need to set up their own personal “bookshelf” (by creating a user account) within MyiLibrary, which functions much like a shopping cart. After adding items to their bookshelf, patrons can then download their audio book and listen directly from their computer, or add it to their iPod (via your iTunes Library) or MP3 player.
For books that are unavailable because all copies are checked out, patrons can place a hold on the title. An email notification will let the patron know when their book is available of download.
Off-campus users will need to have the NC LIVE password to access this resource, however passwords can be obtained by contacting the library.
