OverDrive now has a website just for end users

overdrivecomIf you didn’t know, most users access our eMedia catalog from the Overdrive.com website which was also their company site. Starting today they have launched http://overdrive.com as just a site for end users. It provides a simple way to find their local library, search for titles to borrow, download the OverDrive app and find help articles. All of the information about OverDrive the company is still available it just moved over to company.overdrive.com. All partner resources can still be found at partners.overdrive.com.

The new OverDrive.com allows users the chance to sign up for an OverDrive account, which provides many great features to ensure a positive experience using your digital library. Users are able to search the entire OverDrive catalog on OverDrive.com and filter the results by their saved libraries, as well as save their favorite searches to use time and again. The OverDrive account is optional, and enables users to save an Adobe ID to sync across all devices running the OverDrive app (v3.1) on Android and iOS platforms (Windows 8 is forthcoming as well). This means they only have to enter their Adobe ID once, and then can sync it to all of their devices using the OverDrive app. The app also has added enhancements including a custom embedded streaming video player and a built-in iOS dictionary on iOS devices. This creates a more streamlined experience for your users.

Feel free to give it a try.
