TheLibby app allows faculty, staff and students to access online magazines, eBooks, and audiobooks from our OverDrive collection on their phones and tablets.
You can browse thousands of popular fiction and non-fiction ebooks, magazines, and audiobooks on OverDrive! To locate OverDrive, go to the Research menu tab on the library’s homepage then click the Full A-Z Databases List option to view a list of databases in alphabetical order.
To browse OverDrive, log in using your UH credentials.
Once you’ve found something to borrow, go to the app store on your phone or tablet and download the Libby app. After downloading Libby, add Leeward Community College as your library and log in with your UH credentials.
If you have a public library card in Hawaiʻi, you can also add Hawaii State Public Library System to access their OverDrive collection!

Streaming Video DOs and DON’Ts
No matter which platform you use, please keep in mind these general DOs and DON’Ts:
Show films during in-person classes.
Share direct links with your students so they may view films on their own.
View as many films as you like, as often as you like!
Show films outside of class for events (free or paid) without first consulting the library.
Stream films over Zoom or other video conferencing services.
Share films with persons not affiliated with Leeward CC.
In the coming weeks, we’ll give you an overview of each of our major streaming video platforms–their content, how to access them, and the most popular titles. Perhaps you’ll discover that perfect video to enrich your coursework, augment your learning, or just enliven your weekend!
