A new type of audio and video product has come out on the market. These devices differ from typical books on tape and compact disc in that the device to play them is included with the digital file. Being self-contained devices, the borrower can only listen to the audio book on the included player. At this time, Playaway is the only provider of these devices.
SELCO has not had a GMD that accurately describes these items. Therefore, the GMD (general material designation)(245h) "[self-contained digital recording]" (entered in lower case) is to be used as for devices that include digital audio and video files in a machine that will play these files.
Please contact the Help Desk if you have any questions.
