You’re probably familiar with OverDrive, Leeward’s digital resource for popular fiction, non-fiction, audiobooks, and magazines. Now, old things have become new again with the addition of the Classics collection! These are public domain titles selected from Project Gutenberg’s vast library. There is no limit to the number of simultaneous users for these titles.
To view the collection, access OverDrive Digital Collection from our A-Z Databases page, click on the Collections drop-down menu, and select Classics.
It’s easy to borrow books in OverDrive. Simply click on the Borrow button and log in with your UH credentials when prompted. You may read your chosen title right in your browser.
Change the text size, background, and font to suit your taste.
The book will be returned automatically in 14 days, although you may renew it or return it early if you wish.
At any time, you may view your loans by clicking on the My account dropdown and selecting Loans. You may have up to 10 books checked out. Magazines do not count toward checkout limits.
If you can’t find the classic title you want, please feel free to submit a suggestion and we will see if we can find it.
