As IRMS begins the conclusion of Phase 3 of their resource clearance, they are providing one last opportunity to purchase some of their resources at an extremely reduced price. The deals mentioned in these weekly specials will continue through October 31, 2019. At that point, they will no longer offer any of the video studies for sale to the general public. In addition to the weekly “special sale” items, all items in the online catalog are on sale for at least 60% off the cost they initially paid for them.
ADVENT, CHRISTMAS, LENT and EASTER
Because so many of these resources available in DVD formats and books, it is simply not practical for them to provide a list containing every Advent, Christmas, Lent and Easter resource remaining in the IRMS collection. Instead they will provide you with details of how to locate all of these resources with their descriptions. Here is what you need to do:
1) Click on our on-line catalog
2) Click on “Advanced Search”
3) In the “Subject” field enter Advent, Easter, Lent or Easter and all resources for each topic will appear.
4) You may further refine the search by entering DV, KT or BK in “Resource Code.”
4) You may then click on an item and the details about it will appear.
