Great Courses

High Quality Courses on DVD and CD!

Have you ever wanted to take a course on the Middle Ages? Or improve your understanding of scientific concepts that have changed and developed over the years? Or would you rather learn new cooking techniques through the guidance of a world-class chef? The Library offers professional, highly-rated lectures and tutorials on a variety of topics to be viewed at your own pace in DVD or audiobook format. The courses range from the academic to the practical, and are designed to be accessible to life-long learners of all types, as well as to older teens and post-secondary students.

The available titles are listed below, and can be requested for pickup at your nearest Library branch simply by clicking the cover images and then Place Request. All Great Courses DVDs and audiobooks are loaned out for three weeks so you can learn at your own pace. Only two DVDs and two audiobooks may be borrowed at a time.
