Audio Visual

We have an extensive audiovisual collection of materials in non-book formats.  We carry audiobooks, which are books on compact disc (CD), MP3CD, and Playaway formats in both abridged (shortened) and unabridged versions.  We also have DVDs and language learning CDs which we call CLs (CD language).  Kits consist of audiovisual materials in more than one format.  eBooks and eAudiobooks are available also.

In the childrens department you will find CD hangups, which are CDs accompanied by a booklet.

In our Virtual Collection, accessible through My Giant Search, you will find Naxos Music Library.  This collection of streaming music is available online, 24/7.

Movies, music, TV shows and audiobooks are available online 24/7 through hoopa. Click through for more informaiton.

The library adds new AV items on a continual basis.  To find out what's new, check out our Featured Lists. Remember that any items in our catalogue that are "on-order" can have holds placed on them.
