New From the C-SPAN Video Library: MP3 Audio Files Available for All Programs

Yet another new service (this one is low cost) from the award winning, essential, and wonderful (yes, we like it a LOT) C-SPAN Video Library.

From the Video Library Blog:

The C-SPAN Video Library is now offering MP3 audio files of all programs that are for sale. These files are 99 cents per program and are available quickly because of their small size. Now you can download your favorite program, [our emphasis] including programs not available for video downloads, to your portable devices and take them with you to listen. It is just another feature of the C-SPAN Video Library.

All streaming material available to search, find, and view online is free.

Finally, a little practice and the C-SPAN Video Library Advanced Search interface can really assist with getting to what you need quickly and easily
