Once you have found a title, click Borrow to check out the title (you will be prompted to sign-in if you haven’t already done so, using your ACU Username and Password). The title will be downloaded to your Bookshelf where you can begin reading the book in your browser or choose a download format.
From your Account page, you can view your Holds, Lists (Wish List, Rated titles, and Recommendations for you), and change your lending period(s) from the Settings page.
Click the ribbon at the bottom of a title to add or remove it from your Wish List.
The books are found from the library home page > FIND > 'Recreational reading & viewing' or from the Quicklinks > Recreational reading & viewing
You can search 'Additional Titles to Recommend' in our Overdrive catalogue for books that we don't have.
Then with a simple click you can recommend that we purchase it. We can then email you when the book is available and put it on hold for you.
Once you recommend a title to the library, you cannot remove it from your recommendation list because the library has already been alerted that you've made the request. If you'd like to see a list of titles you've already recommended, you can find it on your library account page. On the Lists page, select the recommended titles list from the "Lists" drop-down.
