About Talking Book Topics

Talking Book Topics is published bimonthly in cassette, large-print, and online formats and distributed at no cost to blind and physically handicapped individuals who participate in the Library of Congress reading program. It lists digital audiobooks and magazines available through a network of cooperating libraries and covers news of developments and activities in network library services.

The annotated list in this issue is limited to titles recently added to the national collection, which contains thousands of fiction and nonfiction titles, including bestsellers, classics, biographies, romance novels, mysteries, and how-to guides. Some books in Spanish are also available. To explore the wide range of books in the national collection, access the NLS International Union Catalog online at loc.gov/nls or contact your local cooperating library.

Talking Book Topics is available online in HTML and plain text at www.loc.gov/nls/tbt and in downloadable audio files on the NLS Braille and Audio Reading Download (BARD) service at http://nlsbard.loc.gov/.

In Brief

More titles in Talking Book Topics

Beginning with this issue (July–August 2012), Talking Book Topics will list up to five hundred titles per issue to eliminate a backlog of unannounced digital talking books. For space and cost considerations, until further notice these titles will be listed as one-line annotations with their subject categories and advisories for violence, strong language, or explicit descriptions of sex. We hope that readers will enjoy the larger selection of titles.

Audio magazines moving to digital flash cartridges

Drawing of digital cartridge

In the fall of 2012, NLS will begin transitioning the audio magazine program to the digital cartridge medium. This means that upon completion of the transition in early 2013 all audio magazine readers will need to have a digital talking-book player to continue receiving their magazines. Contact your local cooperating library to get your digital players now, if you do not already have one.

The blue audio magazine cartridges will ship in a dark red container with a distinctive logo. The cartridge may contain several audio magazines to which you subscribe. When a cartridge with more than one magazine is inserted into a digital talking-book player, it will announce instructions for navigating among the multiple periodicals on that cartridge. The cartridges will be sent out at the frequency of your most frequent magazine: for example, readers of The Week will receive their cartridges once a week. Magazine cartridges are recycled and must be returned. The process for cartridge return is the same for both books and magazines: turn over the address card on the container and place the cartridge in its container for mailing. As with books, if cartridges are not returned your service may be disrupted.

Readers who receive Talking Book Topics on cassette will soon be receiving it on digital cartridge with their other audio magazines. The print order forms for Talking Book Topics will be mailed out separately from the magazine cartridge.

New features and materials available in the next upgrade of BARD

The Braille and Audio Reading Download (BARD) site will be updated to include braille materials, locally produced magazines, instructional music audiobooks and braille music scores, and foreign-language materials; and new features have been introduced to enhance the user's experience.

The new My Wish List feature will allow you to store and access titles that you
want to download later. The My Previous Downloads feature will display a list of all of the titles you have downloaded.

Every title and magazine issue will have its own details page, which will feature
all of the information from the summary page and include some additional bulleted notes such as navigation information for audiobooks, the transcribing agency for braille books, and other information from the NLS International Union Catalog. Each details page will also feature links to other books by the same author, audiobooks read by the same narrator, books on the same subject, and books in the same series. Below the bulleted notes you will find the link to download the title and a link to add the title to your wish list.

With this new release of the BARD service, the Web-Braille service will be discontinued. Web-Braille materials will continue to be accessible through active links in the NLS International Union Catalog as well as through the online version of Braille Book Review. However, you will be prompted to enter your BARD username and password when you access Web-Braille materials from these locations. To continue to access Web-Braille materials, you must register for BARD service. If you have not yet registered, go to https://nlsbard.loc.gov/, select the link for BARD Application Instructions, then choose the link to the BARD Application for Individuals, and submit the information requested on the form.

Throughout BARD, braille listings will always follow audio listings with the
exception of those in each user's individual wish and previous downloads lists, where they will appear in the order that you have added them to the list. Whenever braille materials are available, a link at the top of the page called Skip to Braille will lead readers directly to the braille results.

Books for Adults

Books listed in this issue of Talking Book Topics were recently sent to cooperating libraries. The complete collection contains a wide range of fiction and nonfiction books, including biographies, classics, westerns, mysteries, romances, and others. Contact your cooperating library to learn more about the wide range of books available in the collection.

Digital talking books, available on cartridges, are labeled with the prefix DB. Most books fit on one cartridge. Cassette books are labeled with the prefix RC and play at 15/16 ips. One cassette holds up to six hours of play. To order books, contact your cooperating library. Many books are also available for download on the NLS BARD web site at http://nlsbard.loc.gov/.

Note: For the information of the reader, a notice may appear immediately following the book description to indicate occurrences of violence, strong language, or explicit descriptions of sex. The word "some" before any of these terms indicates an occasional or infrequent occurrence, as in "some strong language."
