The University Libraries has a small collection of audio books; most are available on cassette tapes. Our collection policies specifically mention that we do not collect audio books.
Here is a list of audio books on cassette. (Note that this lists includes interviews and other non-book materials.) Equipment for listening to these cassettes is available for use in Newman Library. Check out headphones from the Circulation Desk.
The Montgomery-Floyd Regional Library system collects audio books including books on CD. They also offer audio books for downloading as MP3 and WMA files. Residents of Montgomery and Floyd counties (including on campus students) are eligible to receive a library card.
Free audiobooks are available from a number of online sites. These typically include books that are now in the public domain (those published before 1923).
A number of commercial sites also sell audio books (and have free podcasts for some materials)
