State Library Newsletter: Letter to Libraries Online January 2018
Happy holidays! As our #TalkingBookTuesday campaign nears its end, this week we’d like to introduce Joel, the man behind the proverbial curtain. On top of his normal tasks, Joel has been running most of the #TalkingBookTuesday campaign. He’s gotten so good at it he can now draft posts without looking at his screen, as exemplified by the video below.
Joel is the Oregon Talking Book and Braille Library registrar, meaning he reviews all new incoming applications, sets up new ...accounts, and coordinates the user database to make sure records stay clean. He also loves wearing his festive sloth ugly Christmas sweater, again, as exemplified by the video below.
Talking Books registers on average over 1,100 new users every year! Registering is FREE, all of their materials (books, equipment, accessories, etc) are provided at no cost to the user, and they don’t even charge late fees. Give the gift of Talking Books this holiday season, and have a very merry Christmas and a happy New Year!
In honor of CCCOER’s 10th anniversary, check out this new addition to our LIS Collection: Affordable Course Materials: Electronic Textbooks and Open Educational Resources, edited by Chris Diaz. Available through ILL! #FridayReads #CCCOER

Congratulations to the National Library Service for the Blind and Physically Handicapped for uploading their 100,000th book to BARD! That is an incredible milestone, and demonstrates their commitment to their motto: that all may read!
Oregon Talking Book and Braille Library users can download books from BARD three ways: from the BARD website, using the PC-only computer application BARD Express, or the free BARD Mobile app for iOS or Android devices.
Downloading books is a gr...eat way to ensure you have books to read even when we’re out of the office, which is especially helpful throughout the holiday season. Register with Talking Books and create a BARD account today!
