We added Overdrive in order to give UVM users a source of audiobooks and popular reading online. Most of the books available through Overdrive are not available anywhere else.
Books! and, audiobooks.
Overdrive will have a small collection of audiobooks, classic novels, popular novels, nonfiction, scholarly books, and trade literature. You can find out what is in our Overdrive account by visiting it or by searching in Catquest - Overdrive books will appear in your search results as do other books.
You can ask using two different methods:
We will order audiobooks if requested and available, including audiobook editions of books that we also have in print or other online format.
Yes. We will get a print copy of any book in our Overdrive collection if we do not already have it and it is requested.
The Libraries do not typically duplicate books across format, but we will do so for books available through Overdrive.
Typically yes, but if other people have placed a hold and are on the waiting list, you may not be able to.
If a book is already on loan and thus unavailable, you will see a Hold button instead of a Borrow button. Click on it. You will get a notice when it is available for you.
Your account will have a 14 day checkout as a default, but you can change this to be either 7 days or 21 days.
Tap in the middle of the screen.
Typically yes, you can.
Yes, you can set OverDrive or Libby to display dyslexic font.
Many libraries have different collections of books and audiobooks on OverDrive. If you have a library account with a public or other library that has OverDrive, you might want to use that one as well as your UVM account on the same Libby app. You can do this.
You can stack up library accounts and search them all at once using Libby. Click on the Libby icon in the top right corner to find the Add a Library option to add all of your library cards.
