The library owns several audiobooks in support of academic programs.


In addition to audiobooks available from OneSearch, you can freely access thousands of public domain book recordings from LibriVox. Volunteers record texts of titles that are no longer subject to copyright restrictions, making this service a great resource for finding the audiobook version of your favorite classic.
