Introducing… OverDrive’s Next Generation Digital Library

Leave a comment

300x250-A-EBy far one of the coolest resources Rolfing offers the Trinity community is OverDrive. Maybe you’ve accessed it before, or maybe this is the first time you’ve heard about it. OverDrive is an online platform that lets you borrow e-books and audiobooks from the library, and then download them to the kinds of devices you and I use on a daily basis: computer, tablet, e-reader, smartphone, iPod, etc. And now OverDrive has been redesigned to make using this digital library even easier.

Here’s how it works. Say you want to listen to an audiobook on your commute. Just hop on over to our OverDrive page, scroll through all that Rolfing offers (biographies, devotional lit, novels, theology, oh my!), find the audiobook you fancy, click the big blue “Borrow” button, and voilĂ . You can then listen to it on your iPad or your laptop or your smartphone, or a combination of these, both online and offline. And when the borrowing period is over, the audiobook is automatically returned to the virtual library so another patron can listen to it — which means overdue fees aren’t even possible with OverDrive (good news for people like me).

You know you’re intrigued. Go check it out now. It’s open 24/7.
