Accessing ebooks: OverDrive (popular e-books and audiobooks)

This guide provides a brief overview of how to find ebooks in Encore (the main search engine of the library) and details other popular platforms for ebooks.

Viewing and downloading an e-book from OverDrive

OverDrive has popular fiction and non-fiction leisure e-books and audiobooks. Log in to OverDrive with your A# and Banner password (be sure to capitalize the A in your A#).


Browse through the collections. When you find an e-book or audiobook that you would like to enjoy, click Borrow.

The next page will show you when your loan "expires" and allow you to choose between reading or listening to the e-book or audiobook in your browser or downloading in a selected format. Please note you can only return the title if you choose to read the item in your browser. Once the item is downloaded it will be returned automatically when the loan period has expired. 

Please see the OverDrive Help page for further assistance.
