Nearly all printed materials from the Church are also available on LDS.org or in the Gospel Library mobile app. Going digital doesn’t mean giving up your printed materials completely—both may have their time and place in your life.
Consider which digital resources make sense for you:
- Versatile. There are some things, like video and audio, that you can’t have in print. Digital has everything in one place.
- Notetaking. With digital publications, you can highlight and take notes in scriptures, manuals, and other publications. They all sync to your computer and mobile devices and are searchable.
- Comprehensive. It’s like a huge library. You can carry Church publications in one hand and study them anywhere.
- Searchable. Search features can help you quickly find what you’re after.
- Shareable. If you like something, you can share it. It’s an easy way to share the gospel.
- Efficient. You have to order printed materials and wait for them to be shipped to you. With digital materials, you simply click Download and you have them in seconds. And all your digital materials fit on your computer or mobile device.
- Affordable. It costs you nothing to access digital Church materials; and the more people choose digital, the more the Church saves on printing, mailing, and inventory costs.
If you haven’t yet made the move to digital, there are plenty of people who can show you the way.
