RBDigital update

Published on 23 February 2021


On Wednesday 24 February, RBDigital magazines will be moving to the Libby app/Overdrive platform. The content transfer may take up to 24 hours for all titles to fully populate.


If you have already been enjoying the Libby app, there will be no change, other than you may notice there are even more great titles available for you to borrow.


Note that RBdigital customer accounts, loans and holds will not be migrated. Any current checkouts will be available in RBdigital through the remainder of their lending periods so you can finish your title without disruption. However, all future borrowing after Wednesday 24 February should be on Libby/Overdrive. After Friday 30 April 2021 the RBdigital platform will be retired.
