It’s hard to believe, but it has been almost five years since we launched our OverDrive eBook collection. eBooks have exploded in that short time, and we’re gratified to see how popular the collection is. Since the launch, our collection has grown by leaps and bounds (with new titles added all of the time) and we’ve expanded the service to include eAudiobooks.
OverDrive has changed over the years as well, and recently made some important modifications to our eBook site. There’s a new look, new features and new sign-in options. A bit more about this below:
The new design includes includes easy-to-understand item availability, as well as quick links that let you borrow titles or place holds right away.
New sorting and filtering options make it easier to find the title you’re looking for and make new discoveries. You can now filter your search results by availability, format, date added, subject, and more. You can also sort search results by relevance and popularity. Tabs at the top of the page let you to see what’s new and trending in the library’s eBook collection.
New Sign-In Options
You can still sign in directly with your library card number and PIN, but now you have the option to link your library card with an OverDrive account or your Facebook account. For more details, see OverDrive’s web page on which sign-in option is best for you.
This isn’t all. There’s a full list of enhancements on the OverDrive Help page. Overdrive is also planning to introduce new features that will work with readers who use OverDrive and Facebook accounts in the near future. These include personalized recommendations while browsing the website, new ways to manage your checkouts, holds, and wish list items, and more. Stay tuned!
