Checking out Audiobooks

Find a title by browsing or searching the collection. Once you've selected a title you're interested in, you can preview it or check it out. You can have up to 10 items checked out and place up to 5 items on hold.

To listen to your your audiobook, download it to the device you plan to use. How this is done is dependent upon the sort of device you have. Take a look at the sidebar for the different options.

Streaming RBDigital Audiobooks

While it is not "ideal", you can stream RBDigital Audiobooks in your browser. Once the audiobook has been checked out, click on the "Chapters" tab. You will find this tab just below the bottom of the black upper section of the page. From there you can click on the different sections or chapters of the title.

Although an error message will appear, the section will play. A player will not appear. And the functionality of the playback is extremely limited. If you are able to download the RBDigital MediaManager or App, the experience will be much improved.
