This sounds like a great program. I'm offering my library school students the opportunity to get extra credit for taking it!

While you are thinking about learning more about using audiobooks in libraries, let me do a moment of self-promotion. I teach a 4 hour course that is an introduction to everything audiobooks. It's perfect for new staff or someone who is unsure about why libraries include audiobooks in the collection. Visit and look in the catalog for Listen Up! AMIGOS offers discounts for collaborative organizations and this is a live workshop on your computer. Thanks for bearing with this commercial message.
