OverDrive Introduces New Features to Enhance Book Discovery

OverDrive is adding deep search and Notify Me tags in the Libby app to “help readers discover titles beyond the library’s collection and indicate titles of interest. When a reader searches for a book in Libby by name, author or subject, the new deep search feature presents additional titles from OverDrive’s complete catalog of over 5 million titles, even if the books are not in the library’s digital collection. By tapping ‘Notify Me’ on a title that is not in the library’s collection, the reader alerts their library of their interest and Libby notifies the reader if the title is purchased and made available to borrow.”

These new features are currently being tested in 60-plus library communities and “have received overwhelmingly positive feedback from readers and librarians.” OverDrive notes, “It’s an effective way to reach readers with new or backlist authors or books and provide opportunities for libraries to meet additional demand.”

For more information, read the press release.
