Checking out a Book via OverDrive READ.

From NH Downloadable Books Blog: http://www.nhdbooks.blogspot.com/ 

 Checking Out the OverDrive READ Format on an iPad

The new OverDrive READ format uses HTML5 technology to save the entire eBook in your browser. How is this different from using the Kindle or OverDrive Media Console app?
  • No registration needed
  • No additional app needed
  • No Adobe ID needed (OMC app only)
  • No Amazon account needed (Kindle app only)
  • The OverDrive READ book opens in a new tab on your browser!
Of note: The OverDrive READ format works better in some browsers than others. In some cases, like with the Nook Tablet I experimented with, it was more enjoyable to read the book in the Adobe EPUB format in the OMC app than in the new READ format. Experiment yourself and share your results with your local librarian! 
Log into the site and browse for eBooks as you would on a desktop computer. Narrow your results by format by selecting "OverDrive READ" from the Format section. See: Browsing for eBooks. (Link Needed)
Check to make sure the eBook is available in the OverDrive READ format.
Click the "Borrow" button...
Click the "Read (in your browser)" button. A new tab will open with the eBook. 
(Click on any image to enlarge...)
After the file finishes loading, look at the tips panel and tap "OK" to get rid of it. Pull the page down to see reader options. 
More options can be found by swiping from right to left... 
You can either bookmark the site (book) or save the site to your home screen. Adding an icon to your home screen is a great way to remember the book!

Now you have an icon to remind you to start reading!

 Always Available eBooks for Training

Here’s the situation: you have a roomful of users, and you want to teach them how to use their eReader devices or the OverDrive app on a tablet or smartphone. Perhaps your first instinct is to search your collection for the latest bestseller, only to find that there’s a mile-long waiting list for that book. What can you do?

Your best bet is to check your library’s OverDrive-powered site for the “Additional eBooks Always   Available” graphic shown here. Clicking this graphic will take you to the library site’s collection of Project Gutenberg titles – a collection of thousands of titles offered in Open EPUB format, which are DRM free.

As the graphic says, these titles do not count against checkout limits, meaning no waiting list is created. If you use these titles for training purposes, your users can still get the books because they are always available. Anyone can grab one of these titles if they need something else to read, while they keep a checkout open on their card in case that mile-long waiting list shifts in their favor.

If the Gutenberg titles aren’t quite enough for you, there are many publishers offering Simultaneous Access titles for your collection.  Some of these include Duke Classics, Blackstone, Tantor, Disney Digital, and many more (visit Marketplace, or contact your Collection Development representative for a complete list). Please note that titles in these collections will count as checkouts for your users, however there will be no waiting list for those titles since they are also always available. Now, when you stand in front of your students, you’ll have more options at your fingertips, and demonstrating how easy it is to enjoy OverDrive media should be a breeze.
