E-Books: Getting Started with Overdrive: E-Books

How to Login to Overdrive

The Robert College ─░brahim Bodur Library is excited to introduce OverDrive, a popular digital distributor of eBooks.  If you want to read best-seller and classic eBooks from our library, this is where you can find the books. You can search for a title quickly and easily, immediately see if it's available and then download it to your device with just a couple of clicks.

You can read books on your computers, phones, tablets and eReaders, and OverDrive’s platform provides help guides and tutorials for all devices.  We've tried to include some of them on this page and you can also find many by searching the internet.

To get started:

Step One: Click the Overdrive Link, or login to our Overdrive database http://robcol.lib.overdrive.com

Step Two: Login with the first part of your school email address and your school email password. 

Step Three: Search/Browse for items.

Step Four: Click Borrow, or if the book is out, click the Hold button so you can get it when it is returned.

Step Five: Read the book by clicking Read. Do not click download unless you want to read the book on an eReader or in Adobe Digital Editions. You will not be able to take notes if you use Download.

Step Six: If you want to listen to an audiobook, click Listen. If you want to listen to the book offline click download the MP3 format. 

Have fun!
