NLS has just released BARD Express!!! BARD Express is a new way to access BARD and the thousands of audio titles in the NLS collection. BARD Express will make browsing BARD audio materials, downloading titles, and transferring them to a cartridge or USB drive much easier for many patrons using a windows PC.
BARD Express offers a command-driven experience, not requiring NLS patrons to remember a multitude of keyboard commands. BARD Express manages audio materials that users download to their computer and categorizes the materials by books, magazines, read items, and unread items for easy sorting. The program also simplifies transferring talking books and magazines to a cartridge or USB drive.
