National Network of Equitable Library Service (NNELS)

NNELS (National Network of Equitable Library Service) is a new Canadian repository of e-audiobooks developed for the print-disabled. Talking Books patrons are able to download titles directly to their computer or request DAISY discs from their home library.

Some titles, those without copyright restrictions, are available to all library patrons. These items have  “DAISY Download the Daisy file” at the bottom of the description, rather than “Login to access this item”.

Many of the titles are narrated by a computer-generated voice.

For more information, please contact Talking Books by phone, 604-990-5800 ext. 8125, or by email, yvonne@nvdpl.ca.
