If you download e-books from the library, you know that the process can be cumbersome – especially for new users! It seems our e-book vendor, OverDrive, has heard our concerns and will be releasing some features to help address them.
The feature I’d like to highlight today is a new platform called “OverDrive Read.” This platform would allow library e-books to be read from any standard web browser, without the need to download software or authorize a device. It is due to be released by the end of the year. To read more about this new platform, see their press release. If you would rather watch a video about it, see below. Stay tuned for more news about improvements to our media download service.
