With the large amount of materials being transferred to the new Indiana Digital Library on Libby, the move is taking a while, and at this time, digital materials will largely be inaccessible for checkouts. If you had holds on Libby/OverDrive, don't fret! They are being transferred, too!
We are asking for patience as it may take a few days before materials can be checked out via Libby and OverDrive. Even as Libby gets back up and running, some materials may be transferred at later dates. When the transfer is complete, patrons will have access to digital materials (e-books, audiobooks and magazines) from about 200 Hoosier libraries. In the meanwhile, Hoopla (both the app and browser version) remains available to patrons.
Syracuse Public Library will update our social media platforms and our news page as information becomes available to keep everyone in the loop.
If you have any questions about the move, comment on this article. We will answer them or submit them to our contacts with Indiana Digital Library for clarifications.
How To Switch To The Indiana Digital Library
Currently, sign-up for the new Indiana Digital Library via Libby is spotty. When a staff member attempted to switch their app over to Indiana Digital Library, the request could not be completed. However, when things are up and running, you will use the pictured steps below to get setup.
For those who use OverDrive in a web browser, you will want to update the URL you use to https://idl.overdrive.com/. Like with the Libby app, the web browser is currently unable to authenticate accounts for the Indiana Digital Library.
If you use the OverDrive app, take this opportunity to switch to Libby. OverDrive Inc. will be discontinuing its OverDrive app soon.
