Wavesound Adds The Great Courses to Its Unlimited Streaming Video Service—Which Saves Libraries as Much as 75%
Now, patrons can access The Great Courses Library Collection exclusively via the RBdigital app—without breaking library budgets

Sydney, June 25, 2018—Wavesound Pty Ltd, an RBmedia company, today announced that The Great Courses Library Collection will soon be available exclusively on the RBdigital™ app. For the first time in the industry, libraries have an affordable way to offer patrons unlimited access to streaming video through an innovative pricing model. 
 
While other library vendors offer The Great Courses on a pay-per-lesson model, Wavesound offers patrons unlimited access to The Great Courses during any seven-day period.  The RBdigital unlimited model enables library patrons to binge-watch videos the same way they do on subscription streaming video services like Netflix—saving libraries as much as 75% compared to other library vendors.   
   
With the addition of The Great Courses Library Collection in this exclusive unlimited model, patrons will be able to “binge-learn” over 150 of the most popular courses taught by the world’s top professors. With hundreds of videos on subjects ranging from photography to physics, The Great Courses Library Collection offers engaging lectures for virtually every patron.
 
“The addition of The Great Courses Library Collection makes our education offering to library patrons one of the most robust in the industry,” says Nada Stanojlovic, General Manager of Wavesound. “Via the RBdigital app, patrons can also access music and art instruction and software training—as well as audiobooks, magazines, and eBooks.”
 
The Great Courses joins an ever-increasing number of content services available on the RBdigital app. It allows library patrons to access the broadest array of content services available in the industry all in one app including:
 
  • Audiobooks—Thousands of exclusive audiobook titles, as well as premium content from other major publishers.
