RBdigital has acquired OverDrive, but they realized that the Libby app is more user friendly than the RBdigital app. The company decided that it would be easier on everyone to move their materials onto the Libby platform. For the Lakeland Library Cooperative, this transition is occurring at 8 AM on Wednesday, October 21, 2020.
If you aren’t sure how to use the Libby app please see this information.
The magazines will be moved to OverDrive/Libby in 2021. Be on the lookout for more information as we get closer to the new year.
Current checkouts will be available through the remainder of their lending period in the RBdigital app. Current checkouts will not be moved to OverDrive. This will allow users to finish their title without disruption or risk of losing their place in the book.
Holds will not be moved to OverDrive. You can export their Transaction History from the RBdigital websites by accessing My Account > Profiles. You could also write down the titles you have on hold. You can place holds on those titles again in Libby.
Wish lists will not be moved to OverDrive/Libby. You can export their Transaction History from the RBdigital websites by accessing My Account > Profiles or by writing down your wishlist. You can recreate their wish list in Libby using Tags.
Checkout history will not be moved to OverDrive. However, you’ll be able to mark titles you’ve already read using Tags in Libby. You can export their Transaction History from the RBdigital websites by accessing My Account > Profiles.
Libby won’t have a record of the titles that you listened or read on the RBdigital app, but it does keep track of your previous checkouts on the Libby app. Each title will have a record of your interaction (date placed on hold, date checked out, date returned).
Eventually the downloadable magazines will be moved to OverDrive/Libby. This is scheduled for January 2021. Be on the lookout for more information as we get closer to the new year!
