In Brief

Next release of BARD brings new materials and features

On November 27, 2012, NLS launched an updated version of the Braille and Audio Reading Download (BARD) service that includes braille books and magazines, music materials, and locally produced titles. New features include a wish-list function, user download histories, more details about listings, and a series search option.

Because digital braille books and magazines are now available through BARD, Web-Braille will be phased out by mid-2013. Braille materials will remain accessible through active links in the online NLS catalog and the web version of Braille Book Review. For more information, please visit https://nlsbard.loc.gov/NLS/NewBARDOverview.html.
