    Is there a master downloadable list that includes all the books/Videos in the NAWCC library? I cant seen to find the link on the web site any longer.

    Thanks

    As I recall, the library has over 9,000 books and more videos than I care to count. Why not just look up what you want using the search tool with keywords?

    You have to know what you want, That it even exists before you can search for it. Title, Artist or even subject. There WAS/IS a list, I know, and yes it was long but at least I could judge a book by it's title that way. ;) I thought that I saved the list but I cant find it anywhere.

    Thanks

    Todd - it was available in February 2016 when I downloaded a copy.

    A 36 page pdf ~58MB - which is too large to upload . I tried compressing it but with the tools I have it is still 48MB.

    I thought it might be interesting to see whether it was possible to generate a list of titles using a wild card '*' in the Library search facility. So I entered * in the search box and hit the Titles icon. After a short pause it returned 26,346 titles with multiple entries for a single document (manuscripts), listing just ten items per page. A bit of a failure.

    I tried that too. At 10 items per page...like you said "A bit of a failure". I have also asked James Campbell, the library Supervisor at NWACC, but I have not heard back as of yet.
