OverDrive allows you to check out current, popular eBooks and eAudiobooks and read them on your eReader or mobile device.
You must be a student, faculty or staff member of the University of Delaware to check out titles from the UD Library's OverDrive site. You will also need a current UDelNet ID and password.
A user may have up to three eBooks checked out at one time.
The lending period is 14 days. Books are automatically returned on the due date and can be returned early.
The eBooks can be renewed three days before the due date by clicking on "Renew". At the end of the loan period, if no one else has placed a hold on the book, the user can check out the book a second time.
