iDCL Reader & DCL To Go Apps

From Kyra:

Have you checked out the DCL To Go & iDCL Reader apps lately?  If not, I encourage you to do so, like ASAP!!!

So I was helping a patron with both an IPad & IPhone yesterday, and a question came up of "can I read my stuff on both of my devices"?

YES you can!!!  And it was easy!!!

All you have to do is the following:
  • Download the DCL to Go app
    • After downloading, it will automatically prompt for Adobe ID account creation, if needed. 
    • Authorize all applicable devices with your Adobe ID 
  • Download the iDCL Reader app
    • Enable Adobe eBooks
You're now good to go to read your eBook or eAudio content on both your IPad & IPhone! 


Returning an ebook through Adobe Digital Editions

In Adobe Digital Editions, you can return ebooks before the due date. 

Here’s how to return eBooks early if you downloaded them to Adobe Digital Editions.
1. Open Adobe Digital Editions on the computer where you downloaded the eBook.
2. Click on the Library View. Titles you have downloaded appear on the right. Click on the small triangle in the upper left corner of the title. Select Return Borrowed Item on the list of options. A dialogue box will pop up. Click Return. The eBook will disappear from your bookshelf in Adobe Digital Editions.
3. The next time you log into Overdrive, the eBook will be checked in, and your account will be updated. If you don’t return the book early, it will expire on its due date.
