The National Library Service (NLS) is pleased to offer BARD Express to its BARD patrons.
BARD Express simplifies the downloading process for patron using Windows-based computers. BARD Express downloads multiple books simultaneously, unzips them automatically, and transfers them to your storage device. It also remembers your BARD password and logs you in automatically each time you access BARD.
Kirk Saathoff, a California software developer, created BARD Express and donated it to the Library of Congress. Saathoff’s wife and son are NLS patrons.
