RBdigital Books

As of December 17, digital books from our RBdigital collection have moved to our ORL eBooks|OverDrive collection.

Checkouts: If you currently have a book checked out from the RBdigital collection, it will be available through the remainder of the lending period, so you can finish your book without disruption or risk of losing your place in the book.

Holds and Wishlist: Holds and items on your wishlist cannot be moved to the ORL eBooks collection. You can get a record of this info from your account on the RBdigital Books website. Go to https://okanaganbc.rbdigital.com/profile, log in with your RBdigital account, and select Export My Transactions History to download a CSV file that you can open in your spreadsheet program. Once the title is available in the ORL eBooks collection, you can request the book again.
