NLS: That All May Read


This catalog lists audiobooks produced during 2009 for adult and young adult readers. Digital talking books, available on cartridges, are labeled with the prefix DB. Most books fit on one cartridge. Cassette books are labeled with the prefix    RC and play at 15/16 ips. One cassette holds up to six hours of play, so one book may contain multiple cassettes. Since a title that is available as both a digital book and a recorded cassette has the same book number, the prefix DB/RC is used with the book number.

Books are listed alphabetically within subject categories under nonfiction and fiction headings. Book descriptions include advisories such as violence, strong language, or explicit descriptions of sex. The word “some” before any of these terms indicates an infrequent occurrence, as in “some strong language.”

A separate section lists books for young adults and books in Spanish under nonfiction and fiction headings. Indexes to young adult books and bestsellers are located after the Spanish entries. Separate title and author indexes and a form for ordering books are provided at the back of the catalog.
