Audiobooks Online - Cancelled

This subscription was not renewed due to low usage and technical issues. Our students and faculty have access to downloadable audiobooks through Mid-Columbia and Richland public libraries. May 2012.

The library has added our first collection of audiobooks, an ‘academic’ subscription collection from Recorded Books with several hundred titles. They are available now to Search in OneClickDigital. To be able to ‘check out’ books you will have to create a free account, either on campus or after logging in with our quarterly password.

You will then be able to download titles to your computer and/or Mp3 player.
