OverDrive has just released two new features to help with the ease of reserving popular eBook titles.
The first, automatic borrowing, allows eBooks and eAudio titles to be automatically checked out when a book becomes available. While placing a title on hold, click the 'Automatically borrow this title when it becomes available' option. For more information, be sure to read the OverDrive article
The second feature, suspending a hold, ensures the reader that they won't lose their place in the holds queue if they want to temporarily suspend a hold on a title. This is helpful if the reader is in on a waiting list for a title and is currently reading another. The reader will continue to move up the wait list but the hold will not be filled for an amount of time specified by them. More information on this can be found in the OverDrive blog
