RBdigital is Now Libby/OverDrive
The owners of our digital magazine and audiobook platform, RBdigital, have acquired Overdrive, another major eBook and audiobook platform that Bowen Library subscribes to.
All RBdigital content will be migrating over to OverDrive. For Bowen Library users, this means you will find that content on the Libby app (also the OverDrive app), and online at the Library2Go website.
When is this happening?
December 17/18, 2020: RBdigital audiobook collection moves to OverDrive/Libby/Library2Go. Current RBdigital checkouts, holds, history and wish lists for audiobooks and ebooks will no longer be available. Magazines will continue to be available through the RBdigital app and website.
The RBdigital audiobook collection will begin migrating to Libby/Library2Go and will become available for borrowing/holds.
TBD, early 2021: RBdigital Magazines will be moved to the Libby/Library2Go platforms. The RBdigital app/website will be discontinued.
2021 TBD: Access to RBdigital’s IndieFlix independent films will move to the Libby/Library2Go platform.
How will this affect me?
If you use the Libby app or use Library2Go on your computer, you will see added content.
If you use the RBdigital app, you can delete it and download the free Libby app to access Bowen Library eBooks and audiobooks. If this is your first time using these, you will need to register with your Bowen Library card.
We apologize for the inconvenience to our RBdigital users. This migration was a decision made by the owners of RBdigital and OverDrive and is out of our control. Please contact us if you need any help using Libby or Library2Go.
