OverDrive Expands Magazine Catalog for Libraries Worldwide, More than 3,000 Titles Supplied by ZINIO Now Available Through Platform

From OverDrive:

OverDrive, the leading digital reading platform for libraries and schools worldwide, is now offering more popular digital magazines than ever before. As a result of the company’s acquisition of RBdigital earlier this year, over 3,000 in-demand magazines supplied by ZINIO are now available through the OverDrive platform in the Libby app. All magazines are available in unlimited simultaneous use for public, academic and corporate libraries. Popular, top-selling titles in the new OverDrive Magazines package include National Geographic, The New Yorker, Good Housekeeping and Us Weekly (title availability may vary by geographic region.)

With this new catalog addition, patrons can borrow and read digital magazines alongside ebooks and audiobooks in the award-winning Libby app. The app now includes a new article view, which makes reading digital magazines more interactive and enjoyable.

Libraries with an existing digital magazine or comic subscription through RBdigital will be migrated to the OverDrive platform in early 2021.
