Burling Library's Listening Room is set to undergo a major renovation beginning this summer (see periodic updates at http://listenroomren.wordpress.com/). Plans are in place to expand the room so that library patrons can have direct access to most of the collection of over 20,000 DVD, VHS, Blu-ray and compact discs. The collections includes audio recordings in Classical, popular, and world music or spoken texts, as well as feature and documentary films covering foreign languages and an extensive range of genres.
