AEC Digital Library

To view a listing of accompanying audio and video supplements for textbooks used in AEC courses, please visit the AEC Digital Library. You will need a KU online ID to access these portions of the library. We recommend downloading VLC Media Player, a free multimedia player available for both Macintosh and Windows platforms, which will play all of the Digital Library audio and video files.
