eBook Update: OverDrive for Nook, and New Titles in 3M Cloud Library
Great news for Nook tablet owners and readers looking for more new titles in ebook format.
OverDrive Media Console is now available for
- NOOK HD
- NOOK HD+
- NOOK Tablet™
- NOOK Color™
You can get it right from the Barnes & Noble NOOK Apps storefront on your device.
This means you no longer have to "side-load" ebooks using your computer. You can download library ebooks direct from our catalog to the device. As long as you have a wi-fi connection you will have something new to read!
- How to install OverDrive's mobile app on your NOOK
- Getting started with Android (NOOK's version is the same as other Android tablets)
If you're on an older or e-ink NOOK, you can find instructions on syncing with Adobe Digital Editions.
Here is a quick overview video from our friends at King County Library System.
The other exciting news? New York Public Library cardholders now have access to even more books than before, with a pilot offering through 3M Cloud Library. Download the app for Windows PC, Android, iPad, or iPhone, and enter your barcode to start getting books!
If you have a Windows computer and an ereader (other than Kindle) you can transfer your ebooks to the device.
Connect your device to your Windows computer with a USB cable. In the 3M Cloud Library App, a notification will appear below the navigation tabs: connected to device: [device name]. Click on My Books and you will see a green download to device button on your ebooks. Click it to transfer your ebooks. A dialog box will tell you when your ebook has been successfully transferred to your device.
If you already use Adobe Digital Editions to download eBooks from OverDrive or another service, 3M Cloud Library should automatically detect and use the same Adobe ID you used to authenticate that program.
If Adobe Digital Editions is not already installed and registered, or 3M Cloud Library does not detect your Adobe ID, it will give you two options: Use a 3M Cloud ID or enter an Adobe ID and Password. If you intend to transfer both 3M Cloud Library eBooks and OverDrive ebooks to your ereader you should authenticate your 3M Cloud Library app using your Adobe ID and password. Otherwise your ereader will only work with one service at a time.
Here is a short video demonstration for iPad.
