RBdigital magazines are moving to OverDrive, CPL’s primary platform for eBooks and downloadable audiobooks. Magazines are currently available in both OverDrive and through RBdigital. Access to magazines through RBdigital will end March 31, 2021.
All titles that were available in RBdigital will be available in OverDrive. You’ll continue to have access to popular titles such as Chicago Magazine, Cook’s Illustrated, Cosmopolitan, The Economist, Muy Interesante, National Geographic, The New Yorker and Prevention. You’ll also find new titles, including a large selection of non-English ones.
Why are RBdigital magazines moving to OverDrive?
OverDrive acquired the RBdigital platform last year and chose to discontinue the RBdigital platform and move all content into its own platform.
How do I find OverDrive magazine titles?
The easiest way to find a magazine on the OverDrive website or Libby is to search for it by title. You can also browse the collection on the website or in the app.
How do I read OverDrive magazine titles?
You can check out magazines in OverDrive for 21 days. Magazines are automatically returned, but can be renewed beginning three days before the due date. Check out as many issues as you want—checkouts don’t count against limits on eBooks and downloadable audiobooks. Read OverDrive magazines in your browser or in the Libby app.
Are back issues of magazines available in OverDrive?
Back issues of most titles are available for the previous three years. To view back issues, find the current issue of a title. On the OverDrive website, back issues will be available under the Select Another Issue button. In the Libby app, back issues are available toward the bottom of the page for a magazine title.
