Changes coming to the library’s ebooks

All subscribers to the Law Library have remote access to Andersons and West Academic ebooks through Overdrive either on our website or through the app. Beginning this week, Overdrive is rolling out a new online platform and app for accessing ebooks from anywhere, at any time.

The platform was designed by Lexis, though it will still support all of our ebooks, whether they are Andersons or another publisher.

Here are the biggest changes:

New homepage layout. The homepage will now be tailored to each individual user, with lists of recently viewed books, links to books with highlights or tags and easier searching.

Highlighting. This feature is new for this version. Users can highlight sections of a book and download those sections with full citations. Those highlights are also saved for your future reference and automatically update with the current information if the publication updates.


Also coming soon is a new app which will make reading ebooks offline much easier. Keep an eye out for more information soon!
