Borrowing eBooks from Enterprise

How do I use the Enterprise library catalog to check out eBooks or eAudiobooks?

There are several ways to borrow eBooks and eAudiobooks: through the OverDrive or Hoopla websites or apps, or through our library catalog. Here’s how to do it through the catalog.

**Note – to directly check out titles from the catalog, you must be logged into the Enterprise catalog with your library card number. Your ALT ID will not work. 

  1. Find the title you’re looking for in the catalog.
  2. Make sure you’ve picked the format you want ( eBook or eAudiobook)
  3. Find the vendor (OverDrive or Hoopla). Have you borrowed from that vendor before?
    1. Yes, I have borrowed from that vendor before:
      1. Click the Checkout button and enter your library card number and PIN.
      2. Choose the Checkout Option that works with your device. Not sure? Choose HTML (eBooks) or OverDrive Listen (OverDrive eAudiobooks) to keep your options open.
      3. To read the book, download the checkout in your app (if you are using an app), or read the title in your browser through the vendor’s site.
    2. No, I have never borrowed from that vendor before:
      1. Visit the vendor site, OverDrive or Hoopla, or app to find the title and borrow the eBook or eAudiobook there.
