NHDB Site Updates: Hold Options, Recommended Titles & Cover Images

OverDrive, the company we use to loan eBooks and digital audiobooks, has implemented some changes to our site.

Hold Options



When it rains, it pours, right? All of a sudden, you find yourself with five available holds and only three available checkouts. The good news is now you can suspend your holds for a period of time and not lose your place in line. You also have the option to edit and cancel the suspension.

Note that you can set specific titles to automatically checkout when they become available. If there is no available room in your checkouts, you will still be sent an email notification. Nothing will change if you do not change this option.

Maturity Levels

Within your Account >> Settings, you'll see the option to reduce the visibility of titles based on the maturity level. Furthermore, you can now turn off cover images for adult titles.


Recommended Titles

When you are signed into your account, the system now tries to recommend titles for you based on your current checkouts and holds. This is found on the home page of the site.
