eBooks from Overdrive

OverDrive@SLU includes popular titles, fiction, current events titles, biography, and audiobooks to complement our Browsing Collection. You can check out and download the titles you want to your computer, e-reader, MP3 player, or other handheld device.

OverDrive Next Generation

OverDrive@SLU, our downloadable collection of e-books and audiobooks, has a fresh look and some new features designed to make your reading and listening experiences better than ever.  The new site expands your options with the launch of OverDrive Read, a browser-based ebook format that allows you to check out a book and begin reading with a single click: no software to install or files to download. 

OverDrive Read works on any computer or device with access to a modern web browser.  OverDrive still supports (and provides easier borrowing for) all previously compatible e-book and audio devices including Kindle, Android, iPad, and Nook. 

Our OverDrive collection is available 24/7 with your SLU ID, and includes bestsellers, award-winners, biographies, contemporary poetry, humor, and other popular fiction and nonfiction.
