Overdrive update

News Date: 
18 September 2018

The PSG voted to allow the Recommend to Library (RTL) feature in Overdrive.  It is live now.  This means when patrons search for a title they will also see titles we don’t yet own but could purchase.  If the patron would like us to purchase the title they can click the Recommend button and we will consider it.  Before clicking Recommend the patron sees a message explaining that there is no guarantee the title will be purchased.  The PSG decided to put a limit of 5 requests per patron per month to start with.  If after six months, we haven’t found the volume of requests onerous, we may raise the limit.
