NLS on the Move: The latest on our new initiatives

In July 2017, NLS launched a newsletter called “NLS on the Move” to keep the staff in our national network of cooperating libraries updated on the progress of pilot projects and other new initiatives. Selections from this newsletter that may be of interest to NLS patrons are reprinted in Talking Book Topics and Braille Book Review.

Next phase of wireless delivery pilot begins

Originally published February 22, 2018

Patron volunteers from almost forty network libraries around the country are beginning the next phase of testing of wireless delivery using the prototype device we call the MOCA (an acronym for MObile CArtridge device).

The MOCA—designed largely by NLS engineers—allows the volunteers to access books and magazines from the NLS Braille and Audio Reading Download (BARD) site that have been “pushed” to the device by network library reader advisors. The selections are transferred to a cartridge that can be played on an NLS digital talking-book machine or compatible third-party player—and used again and again to receive more books and magazines. The MOCA relies on public cellular networks, not on Wi-Fi.

Staff members at several network libraries tested the MOCA last fall and then recruited patrons for the current pilot. “We asked each participating library to identify three or four patrons who are avid readers but don’t use BARD because they don’t have a computer or a mobile device,” Education and Training Specialist Paula Bahmani said. “We were also looking for patrons who were willing to try something new and give us detailed feedback on their experience with wireless delivery.”

The first MOCAs were shipped to patrons from eight libraries in January; more will go out in the coming weeks. When the pilot ends this summer, NLS will evaluate the results and decide next steps.

“This pilot is intended to study the feasibility and cost of wireless download for our patrons,” Director Karen Keninger said. “It’s one small step of many that we’re taking toward planning the future of NLS.”

Wooden games available for purchase

The Braille Superstore has brought back its wooden games, which are made of teak and adapted for blind players. Titles include Connect Four, Chess, Shut the Box, Backgammon, Tangram, Parcheesi, Chinese Checkers, and Snakes and Ladders. For more information, call the Braille Superstore at 1-800-987-1231 (toll-free) or visit www.braillebookstore.comExternal.

Braille maps available from NBP

The collection of tactile maps and other drawings produced by the Princeton Braillists over the past three decades has been transferred to National Braille Press (NBP), where arrangements are being made for ongoing distribution. The Princeton Braillists produced thirty-five books of tactile maps. The maps are detailed and labeled in braille only, so some experience with tactile drawings is recommended for map users.

National Braille Press hopes to maintain and reproduce the current maps while looking into ways to update the geographical information, recode the braille to meet Unified English Braille standards, and create new volumes for different countries and states. For more information about these maps and drawings, call (617) 425-2442.

Books for Adults

Books listed in this issue of Talking Book Topics were recently sent to cooperating libraries. The complete collection contains a wide range of fiction and nonfiction books, including biographies, classics, westerns, mysteries, romances, and others.

Registered users may also immediately download all titles and magazines from the NLS Braille and Audio Reading Download (BARD) service at https://nlsbard.loc.gov. The free BARD Mobile app is available from the App Store, Google Play, and Amazon’s Appstore for reading talking books on your personal smart phone or tablet. To learn more about the collection or to sign up for BARD, contact your local cooperating library. Regional library telephone numbers and email addresses are listed on the last pages of this magazine.

Books within the headings Adult Fiction and Adult Nonfiction are listed alphabetically by subject category, author last name, and title. For example the title War and Peace by Leo Tolstoy would be listed in Adult Fiction under the Classics subject category and by the last name Tolstoy.

Note: A notice may appear immediately following the book description to indicate occurrences of violence, strong language, or descriptions of sex. The word “some” before any of these terms indicates an occasional or infrequent occurrence, as in “some strong language.” Commercials for which NLS does not have access to the print book may display the notice “unrated,” which means that the book may or may not contain violence, strong language, or descriptions of sex.
