A. Audio Book Collection
Fogler Library has begun an audio book collection. The collection includes
both fiction and nonfiction and is housed in the Media Resource Center on

Center also maintains a list of the titles owned. These books circulate for
three weeks and are checked out from the Center. The format varies by
title, some are audiocassette and some are compact disk.
