OverDrive Test Drive


OverDrive Test Drive is new, and designed to help librarians and customers alike know how to use various devices, and also to use OverDrive. You can:

  • Lend devices: Purchase devices on your own, then customers check them out through your ILS. Test Drive offers instruction for which devices will work for checking them out to the public, how to set them up, and how to reset them after each use.
  • Practice: Use Test Drive devices for hands-on practice downloading eBooks and audiobooks from your digital collection. Your staff and patrons will love you for having this available to them.

Presenter: Colleen Eggett, Utah State Library
Audience: All Utah library workers, especially those interested in setting up Test Drive in their own location.
