RBDigital to Overdrive Transition

Starting around 8:00 AM ET on 12/2, RBdigital will turn off access to audiobook content in the RBdigital app as titles are moved to OverDrive. The content transfer itself may take a few hours and once complete, it could take up to 24 hours for the titles to fully populate in Overdrive’s Libby app. RBdigital will post a message in the RBdigital app as soon as possible and will redirect users to OverDrive after it’s completed. After the transition, you will be able to access digital audiobooks on Overdrive’s Libby app, the same app you can use to access WRL’s ebook collection, as well as from WRL’s Overdrive website.

Holds on RBDigital titles will not be moved, but you may export your Transaction History from the RBdigital website by accessing My Account > Profiles (retrieve your transaction history). You can place holds on those titles again in Libby. 

Please Note: Other RBDigital content including magazines and streaming video (Acorn, Great Courses, etc.) will be be transferred to Overdrive sometime in 2021, and will remain accessible through RBdigital until that transition process is completed. We will send updates as we know more on those pieces.
