OverDrive Website Updates – June 1, 2015

OverDrive Update Notes for Monday, June 1st:

On the account Settings page, users will have the option to enable the “Dyslexic font,” which is designed with a heavy-weighted bottom to increase readability for users with dyslexia. Turning on this setting will update all text at the site to the dyslexic font.

The waiting list display will be updated to show the user’s hold position as a ratio. Instead of displaying the total number of patrons waiting, users will only see the number of holds per copy. This gives users a better idea of when to expect the title.  The ratio is a whole number that represents the number of users on hold divided by the total copies available, rounded up. Advantage patrons will see the ratio adjust accordingly once they have signed in.
General performance enhancements and bug fixes.

Note for Multilingual Websites: New text added as a result of this update will temporarily appear in English only, with translations added in a following release.
