Overdrive acquires RBmedia

OverDrive has acquired RBmedia’s library business, RBdigital, in North America, UK, and Australia. This means that the titles purchased from RBdigital will be transferred to OverDrive. Our patrons will enjoy access to these titles in the popular Libby app. When this transfer is complete, the RBdigital platform and app will be retired. Ebooks and Audiobooks are already transferred over in 2020. Everything else will be moving in the early part of 2021 that includes ArtistWorks, The Great Courses, Method Test Prep, Transparent Language Online, Magazines, Comics, AcornTV, IndieFlix, Qello Concerts, and LearnitLive.

Hoonuit a professional development and training education service, however will not be moving to Overdrive. It was acquired by Infobase and rebranded as Infobase Learning Cloud. As a result they will be migrating to the Infobase platform in early 2021.
