Getting Help Downloading

Technology is wonderful when it works. However, when something goes wrong, sometimes it can seem as though it takes forever to get the right help.

Email NLSDownload@loc.gov for immediate help straight from the experts. Be sure to include the email address you use for BARD/BARD Express and specific details about what device you are using, and what error messages you are getting. You cannot give too much information!

BARD Security Notice

To enhance security of patron accounts and prevent misuse, NLS will be making the following change to BARD:

Any patron account that has not been used in one year or more will be moved to an Inactive/Suspended status. Each day, BARD will check to see if a patron account was last used more than one year ago. When BARD identifies unused accounts, these accounts will be moved to the Inactive/Suspended status and libraries will be sent an automated email that lists affected accounts. Any BARD account that holds the status of Inactive/Suspended can be reactivated quickly and easily by a library administrator.

This change is effective March 23, 2018.

If you have questions, please contact the Library at 1-800-226-6075, or by email at:
OPAC_Librarian@dbs.fldoe.org. Thank you!

Format Change -- September 6, 2016

As of September 6, 2016, we will no longer be circulating cassettes (RCs). The National Library Service for the Blind and Physically Handicapped (NLS) announced a four-year process to withdraw and convert RC titles to digital format at all of the talking book state libraries, which began in 2012. Thousands of titles have been converted. Feel free to contact us if you discover a title is missing from a series or other inconsistency. This remains an evolving project, as some older books are unsuitable for conversion and must be re-recorded or, in some cases, removed from the conversion list. We hope you continue to enjoy our digital books on cartridges as well as books in downloadable format from the Braille and Audio Reading Download service of NLS (BARD).
