‘Tis the day before Christmas and all through the land, librarians brace for the upcoming influx of patrons with new tablets wanting to know how to access OverDrive….
Sound familiar or prescient? If so, join us for this December 24 edition of NCompass Live for a refresher/review of how to install the OverDrive app on a tablet and start checking out and downloading eBooks and audiobooks from your library. (We’ll be using an iPad, but the app works similarly on Android devices .) We’ll also show you where to find device-specific “Getting Started” articles and videos within OverDrive’s online Help.
Presenter: Susan Knisely, Online Services Librarian, Nebraska Library Commission.
