Using the catalog to find just books on CD is a bit problematic. The cataloging rules don't provide a good consistent way of entering those types of records. I've experimented with a couple of kinds of searches, but most will find some of the books and not others. The best success I had was to just to do a keyword search for "audiobook?" (all one word with a question mark at the end to get both the singular and the plural). This search looks like it brings up all the recorded books we have (our collection is pretty small) but it doesn't differentiate for format. Since it is such a small collection, you can probably scan the titles pretty quickly. To find CDs, just ignore any item with a call number that starts RT.... those are cassette tapes. All the others will be CDs and will have a call number that starts CDM... or will have a regular Library of Congress type number and be housed in the "Schafer Collection" which is our browsing collection on the 1st floor of Stapleton.
