WHAT ARE OVERDRIVE PERIODICALS?
OverDrive has partnered with NOOK by Barnes & Noble to make popular digital magazines and newspapers available for lending. Library patrons can browse and borrow digital magazines and newspapers all on the same OverDrive website as ebooks, audiobooks, and streaming video.
WHAT DO YOU NEED TO BORROW OVERDRIVE PERIODICALS?
All you need to borrow periodicals is a valid library card, a NOOK account (no credit card information is required), the free NOOK app (available for all major devices, including iPhone, iPad, Android and Windows 8) or a NOOKtablet.
Unfortunately, the NOOK app isn’t available for Windows 7 or Kindle tablets.
HOW DO YOU CHECK OUT A PERIODICAL?
In order to read OverDrive Periodicals, you must have a NOOK Tablet or have the free NOOK app installed on your Apple, Android, or Windows 8 device. Periodicals can be found by performing an advanced search on Wisconsin’s Digital Library, and searching for format “NOOK Periodicals.” Periodicals will also be integrated into keyword and subject searches as well.
Once a title has been selected, click the “Send to NOOK App” button to check it out.
