Around fall break, spring break and long weekends, the info desk often gets asked whether the library has audio books to check out. The answer is: Yes! Here is some information and tips on how to find them:

  • We have audio books on a variety of formats, including CD and cassette.
  • All of our audio books are physically located on the 3rd floor of Moody, in the Crouch Fine Arts Library, behind the information desk.
  • You can browse the audio books we have online by searching in BearCat for the LC Subject “Audiobooks”.

  • If you know the name of the book you are looking for, and want to see whether we have it in audio book format, search for it by title in BearCat. An audio book will have the notation [sound recording] after the title.

    If the audio book you are searching for is lost amidst numerous print copies, you can limit your search to the “Material Types” of “Audiocasette” or “CD (Audio)” but be warned that this could also bring up any musical selections if any parts of the book were ever set to music and recorded.
