Choice Magazine Listening Service

Many of you have received an information packet from Choice Magazine Listening.  And, many of you are asking, "What's this and how is it different from Oregon Talking Book and Braille Library<http://www.oregon.gov/OSL/TalkingBooks/Pages/index.aspx>?"

Choice Magazine Listening Service (CML) is a great way for our borrowers--Oregonians who are print-disabled--to access lots of magazine articles in one place.  CML produces a cartridge once per quarter that has about 100 magazine articles-an anthology of interesting current information.  It's like a "best of" edition that gives a reader a little bit of everything.

How does it work with Oregon Talking Books? The cartridge that CML uses is in a special format (digital cartridge).  That cartridge needs one of the special "talking book players" supplied by Oregon Talking Books-that's us!

Is CML a competing service to Oregon Talking Book and Braille Library?  No way!  CML is actually one the many items our library offers such as 58,000 audio titles, 20,000 Braille titles, 100 magazines in accessible format, newspapers by phone, descriptive videos, and so much more.

So, the most efficient way to connect your readers with CML is to connect them to Oregon Talking Book and Braille Library-we'll handle the rest.  You can download an application from here<http://www.oregon.gov/osl/TalkingBooks/Pages/registration.aspx#Applications> and help them by signing the last page (feel free to call if you have questions).  We're also happy to send your library printed copies of the application and colorful brochures to display.  Just call or email<mailto:talkingbooks.info at state.or.us?subject=information%20about%20Talking%20Books%20application%20process> us if you are interested.
