Sora by Overdrive

Sora by Overdrive

Sora by Overdrive is our provider of digital content such as e-books, audiobooks, and magazines. Students and faculty are allowed to take out up to 3 e-books/audiobooks at a time. The loan period is 14 days, and materials are automatically returned at the end of the loan period, if not renewed. 

Some materials are single-license, meaning only one user at a time can access the content; in this instance, users are able to place holds on the material for when it becomes available. Sora can also be downloaded on mobile devices, such as tablets or phones, by searching Sora in the app store. 

Please review the video below for a more in-depth overview of Sora.
