#22. Downloadable Audiobooks

Downloadable audiobooks are provided by Overdrive Digital Library which is available through SPL. To start listening to our downloadable audiobooks, you must first download the latest version of the Overdrive Media Console. SPL branches should have the console already downloaded on at least one staff computer. Talk to your branch supervisor to find out which station has the console.

Discovery Resources:

Take the Overdrive Digital Media guided tour.

Discovery Exercise:
  1. Go to SPL’s digital media catalog and explore some of the many titles.
  2. Download and checkout a book that you like.
  3. Listen to the book on your computer, iPod, or MP3 device.
  4. Create a blog post about your findings.
