SHELF (SHared ELectronic Files)

Audio file for SHELF

SHELF is BARD for locally recorded books. Via SHELF you can access books recorded at CTBL and from many other states.

How do you access this collection of books? First you sign into the online catalog using your patron ID# and your password. Then search the catalog or select SHELF content from other libaries on the Browse Tab of the online catalag.

Once you find a book that interests you, use the download link in the status column. From then on all the same steps you use with BARD will apply. You will have to unzip the file and transfer to a cartridge to listen to the book.

If you do not download books, you may request a title by calling the library and speaking with a reader advisor.

Once locally recorded content becomes part of BARD, SHELF will be discontinued.
