  • Related to the above, are there any Nebraska-based professional associations of service providers that we are overlooking in our outreach efforts?

What have you heard or experienced in regard to digital talking books and players that might help us in our interactions with talking book borrowers? Did anything about the new format surprise you in any way?
  • Also, our collection is still divided between books that are online (through BARD) and on cartridge, and those on cassette. What have you experienced so far in obtaining books that are in different formats?
