These Courses are Certifiably Great

As part of the Ulster County Library Association’s expanded deal with RBDigital, we are very happy to announce that Great Courses are now available online for free!

Great Courses are video lectures, given by university professors on a wide variety of subjects, from The Islamic Golden Age to Baking Pastries and Desserts. It’s perfect for any expanding mind, and it’s available at home or on the go! You can access this collection anywhere with an internet connection.

As with AcornTV, You get access to two channels a month with your library card, and each channel is active for one week each. In the context of Great Courses, a “channel” actually gives you access to the whole site for a week-long period, which means you potentially have access to our entire Online Courses selection for two weeks a month. It’s perfect for the knowledge-hungry on a budget.

So, whether you’re in the mood to learn something new, or you just want to brush up on an old topic, our online Great Courses selection available through RBDigital is a great place to start.  For even more Great Courses, check out the library’s physical collection of video and audio courses.
