19. Can I Use the Internet to Look Up and Order Books?

The Talking Book Library has an internet-based Online Public Access Catalog (OPAC). Anyone with internet access can search the Talking Book Library's live database by title, author, media format, or key word search. OPAC also allows users to order and reserve titles and contact the Talking Book Library staff by e-mail at: talkbook@worcpublib.org.

Registered borrowers can add book numbers from search results directly into their request lists and three of these selections are shipped immediately if available. To access the system, registered users must know their user ID and password. User IDs are located on the mailing cards the Talking Book Library sends customers and the password is the patron's birth year.

Registered customers who would like to search for specific titles or add books to their request list can visit the ONLINE CATALOG. For help with or answers to questions about the OPAC, contact the Talking Book Library at 1-800-762-0085, 508-799-1730 or e-mail the Library at: talkbook@worcpublib.org.
