What happened to RBdigital (online magazines)?


Overdrive acquired the company RBmedia in June 2020, including all RBdigital content. Overdrive no longer supports the RBdigital platform and instead has made all content (including magazines) available in the Libby app (or the Overdrive site if accessed in browser).

All magazine titles that were available in RBdigital are now available in Libby.

Magazines can be checked out for up to 21 days. They are always available and can be checked out at any time with no holds or waiting. You can also renew a magazine within 3 days of the end of the lending period. Magazine checkouts do not count against your 10-item checkout limit in Overdrive/Libby.

Most magazines will have a rolling 3 years of back issues wherever available.

The auto-checkout feature is not currently available in Libby, although it is being considered for future development. In the meantime, customers are encouraged to "tag" their favorite magazines in Libby to receive an email notice when a new issue is available.
