Digital Downloads in the Library

Wright Library announces a new way to get your digital audiobooks and music, the Digital Collection Download Station.  Located in the Audio-Visual Department, the Download Station allows patrons to download directly from the Ohio eBook Project to their portable device. All you need is

  • your library card
  • a portable device
  • a USB connector
  • and a few minutes

The Digital Collection is also available from your home computer; however,if you can't download from home, or your Internet connection is slow, bring your MP3 player to the library (with its USB connector) and download your titles directly.

This service is compatible with portable devices from manufacturer's such as Apple, Creative, iRiver, Rio, SanDisk, and others. (Find more information on devices below.)

If you have any questions or encounter any trouble, a librarian will be available to assist you.

You can also download digital media (audiobooks, ebooks, music, and video) from home.  Find out how.

 

Most MP3 compatible devices should play OverDrive® MP3 titles. OverDrive Download Station can transfer MP3 content to most devices with a few exceptions:

  • If you are using a Mac®-formatted Apple® device, you cannot transfer content using the OverDrive Download Station Wizard. To use this Download Station, your Apple device must be formatted for use with Windows. However, you can use the 'at-home' version of this website to download and transfer OverDrive MP3 titles to your Apple device.
  • If you are using a Zune®, you cannot transfer content using the OverDrive Download Station Wizard. However, you can use the 'at-home' version of this website to download and transfer OverDrive MP3 titles to your Zune using Zune Marketplace.
  • If you are using an iPod® Shuffle™, you cannot transfer content using the OverDrive Download Station Wizard. However, you can use the 'at-home' version of this website to download and transfer OverDrive MP3 titles to your iPod Shuffle using iTunes®.
  • If your Apple device is set to automatically sync your iTunes music library to your device, you cannot transfer content using the OverDrive Download Station Wizard. Apple devices must be set to manually manage files in order to transfer content using the OverDrive Download Station Wizard.
