Overdrive and RBdigital Updates
The patron holds limit have been increased from 10 to 15 . This matches the limit for the print collection.
RBdigital eBooks and downloadable audio titles will migrate to OverDrive. This was driven by purchase of OverDrive by KKR, who owns Recorded Books.
On August 10, RBdigital will turn off access to ebook and audiobook content in the RBdigital app as titles are moved to OverDrive. During that time (approximately 4 hours, but could take up to 24 hours for titles to fully populate), patrons will not have access to the RBdigital titles. A message will be posted in the RBdigital app. After the transfer RBdigital patrons will be redirected to OverDrive.
How does this affect patrons?
Those patrons that have RBdigital titles checked out on August 10 will be able to finish reading them in the RBdigital app.
Holds will NOT be transferred to OverDrive.
RBdigital (Zinio) eMagazines will not migrate to OverDrive ....yet. These will continue to be available on the RBdigital app.
