OverDrive is a collection of ebooks and audiobooks that can be borrowed anytime, anywhere. You can browse and read books via the Library's website at https://vanderbilt.overdrive.com or you can use the Libby app on your smartphone or tablet. You can also download books to your Kindle or other ereader.
Users may borrow up to 3 titles at a time and place up to 3 holds at a time. Check out periods range from 7 to 21 days depending on the title.
To get started using OverDrive via a web browser:
Libby supports connecting to multiple libraries, so if you are already using OverDrive/Libby through your public library you can add Vanderbilt as an additional library.
Download the Libby by Overdrive app from your device's app store
Once Libby is installed, the app will prompt you to find and sign in with your library card. Select 'Yes'.
You will then be prompted to look for your library. Select 'I'll Search For A Library'
In the search box, type ‘Vanderbilt University, then select Vanderbilt University from the list of matching libraries below the search box.
After you select your library, you will need to sign in. Select ‘Next’. You will see a message saying Libby wants to use a different site to sign in. Select ‘Continue’.
Sign in with your VUNet ID and epassword and select ‘LOGIN’. You will receive a confirmation screen that you have successfully signed into your account.
