New OverDrive Website Coming February 13
The new OverDrive website will launch next Monday, February 13th. To preview the website click here.
The updated website has been given a fresh new look and key enhancements include a simplified borrowing process and new browsing options. The transition to the new site should be seamless - checkouts, holds and wish lists will not be affected by the change.
More information about the new website and a short video demonstration can be found here.
Some of the enhancements include:
1. Faster response time
2. Auto-complete search functionality
3. New browsing options
A Subjects link and a Collections menu have been added, allowing you to browse all subjects or explore featured content on the website.
4. New availability banners
5. Renewals feature (only available upon launch)
You will be able to renew titles within three days of their expiration date (if there are any copies available) by selecting the Request again link on your Loans page.
6. Audience filter for search results
7. Account-level content preferences
You can set up filters in your Account settings if you wish to omit titles for certain audiences (.i.e. juvenile books) while browsing or searching.
