Overdrive Managing available holds with “deliver later”

New option in Overdrive:

Managing available holds with “deliver later

In March (2020), Overdrive is introducing a new option for available holds in your library’s OverDrive collection: Deliver later. This feature gives you more control over your holds, so you can borrow and read titles when it’s most convenient for you.

To support this feature, the automatic hold checkout setting will be removed from your library’s OverDrive collection. You’ll need to manually borrow your holds when they’re available (including any current holds).
