Searching the collection
Overdrive records are also available in the catalog but you can also search on the MOBIUS Overdrive website. Once logged in following the instructions above, you can select search options or choose the search box. New items and genre selections will be listed on the page. Please keep in mind that there are around 20 libraries in the consortium serving all kinds of patrons. Some of the selections would probably not be items we would have in our collection. Since all the libraries are sharing the same catalog, we can see all the selections
Above the cover image, you can see if the item is available or if there is a waitlist.
Overdrive works with a Kindle as well as iOS and Android mobile devices. You can also read/listen on your computer. If you are downloading an eBook to a mobile device you will need an app. Overdrive has two apps: Overdrive App and Libby. If you have a Kindle, you should use the Overdrive App.
Check out information
Overdrive items work just like physical library items. If there is one copy and it is checked out, you will have to wait until it is “returned” before checking it out. You can put holds on these items in the meantime.
Steps for Checking out an item:
