Overdrive update: March 2023

Beginning March 21st, the Libby app will include new features: Deep Search & Notify Me Tags. Deep search is a feature that allows users to discover titles that are not yet in your library’s collection. When a user finds such a title, they can add a Notify Me tag to be alerted if your library acquires the title in the future. Find step-by-step instructions here.

The Recommend to Library (RTL) feature currently available on the Wisconsin’s Digital Library website and in the legacy OverDrive app will be removed on May 1, 2023. 

For more information about Deep Search and Notify Me Tags, including FAQs and a marketing kit, please see this page from OverDrive’s Resource Center.
