Over 200 eAudiobooks are now available at Henderson Library

The Zach S. Henderson Library at Georgia Southern University has expanded its resources with the recent purchase of 211 complete electronic books in audio format.

The Henderson Library’s collection of eAudiobooks from NetLibrary features the work of best-selling novelists like John Berendt, Toni Morrison and Philip Pullman, plus several books in the popular ‘Learn Before You Land” language series.

Georgia Southern faculty, staff and students as well as members of the general public can download the eAudiobooks to their computer, MP3 player or any digital audio device that supports the playback of secure or protected wma files.

Windows Media Player 9.0 or above is required to access the eAudiobooks, which are not compatible with iPods.

Faculty, staff and students can register for a free eAudiobooks account by logging onto a library computer or by contacting the reference desk. The account will allow these users to ‘check out” the eAudiobooks from any location.

‘Patrons who are affiliated with Georgia Southern have off-campus access to our NetLibrary resources because remote users are authenticated via GALILEO,” said W. Bede Mitchell, the dean of the Henderson Library.

An initiative of the Board of Regents of the University System of Georgia, GALILEO is a web-based virtual library available to the faculty, staff and students of more than 2,000 educational institutions.

People from outside the University who are interested in accessing the eAudiobooks must have a Henderson Library card. With proper identification, the cards are available at the circulation desk.

“Community borrowers can download the eAudiobooks to their computer or device while on campus, and the books will be ‘checked out’ and playable for three weeks,” Mitchell said.

The eAudiobooks collection includes ‘The City of Fallen Angels” by Berendt, ‘Beloved” by Morrison, ‘The Golden Compass” by Pullman, ‘The Historian” by Elizabeth Kostova, and ‘The Shame of a Nation: The Restoration of Apartheid Schooling in America” by Jonathan Kozol.

In addition to the eAudiobooks, the Henderson Library owns thousands of electronic books that are available to its patrons.
