OverDrive Launches Upgrade.

OverDrive launched a new version of its website today. There are many changes, but as a heavy OverDrive user, I’m thrilled to report on the new feature called Wish List.

When looking at a title in OverDrive, you can click the plus sign, circled in red on the image below, to add that title to your Wish List.


My Wish List allows me to keep a running list of titles that I’d like to read/listen to without placing them on hold. Why is this exciting you ask? Because it puts the control in my hands. When I have time to read, I can now just go to my wish list to see which of my options are available instead of placing a hold and getting an e-mail that a title is available at a time that is inconvenient for me. I absolutely love this feature. You can still place holds and get an e-mail alert when a title is available, but the immediate-gratification side of me loves the Wish List feature. Having the items on my Wish List also makes it quicker and easier to access them on the smaller screen of my iPhone.

Did you know that we now offer more than 2,100 downloadable eBooks and audiobooks via OverDrive ? The Bentley Library’s OverDrive collection includes fiction and nonfiction bestsellers, award winners, classics and perennial favorites. Current Bentley students, faculty and staff can borrow titles from OverDrive at http://bentleydownload.lib.overdrive.com/ using a Bentley email address and password. New titles are added monthly, so check back often.

You can enjoy OverDrive titles on all computers and devices, including iPhone®, iPad®, NOOK®, Android™ phones and tablets, and Kindle®. If you are new to OverDrive, check out their Getting Started page for information and assistance. Enjoy!
