We have an audiovisual collection of materials in non-book formats. We carry audiobooks, which are books on compact disc (CD) and MP3CDs 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.
