e-Books About to Get Easier

Friday 26 April 2013

New software features will make finding and reading e-Books and e-Audio from your library even easier.

Over the next week Overdrive is rolling out its exciting Next Generation software to Tasman District Libraries.

A key feature of the new look is Overdrive Read. This browser-based technology means instant access to e-books, online and offline, with no software or downloading required. 

"All you need is a computer or device with a modern web browser," says Collections Librarian Ruth Lawley.

"If the title is available on the virtual shelf, you can start reading right away in your web browser. Just click 'Read' and it's there. You can also download it as you've always done."

Most titles in the library's Overdrive collection will have Read functionality.

Customers can still opt to download their e-books using Adobe Digital Editions or OverDrive Media Console. But the new features will make finding and reading e-books so much easier.

The new features should be available after 25 April.
