There is more exciting news from our OverDrive Digital Media Catalog to go along with last week’s announcement of the improved search features. Now, you can stream the videos you check out straight to your device whether it be a smartphone, tablet or laptop. All you need is a Harris County Public Library card and an internet connection.
Improved Searchability and Content Filtering for HCPL’s OverDrive Digital Media Catalog
Now users of Harris County Public Library’s Digital Media Catalog can choose to see only the titles they want to see specified by maturity levels. In other words, if you’re a grown up and feel like you are past the Green Eggs and Ham stage in your reading life, you can filter out everything but titles cataloged for adults.
Don't panic! We've got the new library catalog ready for you to test, but the same familiar search is still the one you'll be using from the library website. We think you're going to like the new features that make it easier than ever to access all of the resources in our collection, no matter the format. Look for:
- Smarter search technology that makes it easier to find exactly what you're looking for
- Featured NYT Bestseller Lists and New Items Lists
- New texting and social media features
- Spell Check
- Individual "My List" creation
- Ability to place multiple holds at once
