Overdrive e-Magazines Removal
Overdrive will be losing access to many downloadable Nook Periodicals in January and the others by mid-March. If you already have a magazine downloaded to your Nook account you will still have access to the issues. The decision to remove Nook Periodicals from Overdrive was a decision by Overdrive and not  New Hampshire libraries. We -- your New Hampshire Digital Materials Consortium, continue to work with our vendors in the hopes that they can reestablish a similar service in future. For the time being, please speak with your local librarian about accessing digital magazine content through the statewide research database called EbscoHost.
