Union College Library is proud to offer you best-selling and classic audiobooks available 24/7 from the library’s new OverDrive digital collection.
You can browse the collection, borrow with your UC ID and password, and enjoy on your computer, tablet, or smartphone. Audiobooks, can be downloaded into OverDrive® Media Console™(just MP3 audiobooks for Mac® users). Once downloaded, titles can be enjoyed immediately or transferred to a variety of devices, including iPod® and many others. Some audio titles can also be burned to CD to listen on-the-go.
Users with smartphones or tablets can install the OverDrive Media Console app to directly download MP3 audiobooks titles to their device. No matter how you plan to enjoy, titles will automatically expire at the end of the lending period. There are no late fees!
Union’s initial collection of audiobooks has been selected from recommended or required reading listed in course syllabi and for content with academic value. More titles will be added in the next year.
This new service, powered by OverDrive, is free with your UC ID and password. To get started enjoying audiobooks, visit OverDrive. You can find helpful tools and information, as well as a link to contact support.
