How does it work?

Step 1: Browse
Browse the OCLN Digital Media Catalog  
Search by title, subject, author or format  
When you find a title, click BORROW.  
If a title is not available, you may place a hold on it.  
You may have up to 10 titles on hold at a time.  
   
Step 2: Check out
You can have up to 10 titles checked out at any given time.  
Lending periods can vary from title to title.  
You never accrue late fees because titles are automatically returned at the end of the lending period.  
When the loan period ends, the title file expires and you no longer have access to it. You can then delete the file.  
Titles cannot be renewed.  
   
Step 3: Download....and enjoy!
Single-click download to your PC or Mac computer.  
Download directly to iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch, Amazon Kindle, Android, BlackBerry, Windows Mobile devices.  
Use on your computer, burn to CD, or transfer to your portable audio player or eBook reader.
