Beginning today, the RBdigital Magazines that you have enjoyed using their app and website are now available in the Libby app.
We’ll be removing any instances of RBdigital on our website over the coming days as we transition our digital magazine collection to Libby and the Digital Library of Illinois website.
So what does this mean for you?
- From the Digital Library of Illinois website:
You can find digital magazines on the Digital Library of Illinois website by visiting https://dlil.overdrive.com. Click on Magazines in the top menu. Scroll down the page to see all of the magazine collections.
- From the Libby app:
Tap on Explore on the right-hand side in the top menu. Then tap on Guide: Magazines. Scroll down the page to see all of the magazine collections.
On both the Digital Library of Illinois website and in the Libby app you may also search by title.
The checkout period for magazines is two weeks. Magazines are always available, so you will be able to check out an issue again if you didn’t finish what you were reading.
Use this online guide to learn more about the transition to Libby and learn how to use the app to enjoy thousands of digital magazines.
Please note – Magazines will not download into the Overdrive app. Kindle Fire users and users with older Android and Apple devices that still use the Overdrive app will be able to search for magazines in the app but will only have the Read in Browser option. Anyone who uses the Digital Library of Illinois website in a browser will also only have the Read in Browser option. Moving forward, digital magazines can only be downloaded into the Libby app.
