Traveling for the summer? Need a beach read or audiobook? WVU Libraries have expanded services with eBooks and digital audiobooks available to enjoy from the Libraries’ website. Students, faculty and staff can borrow popular digital media anytime, anywhere by visiting

Users can browse the Libraries’ website, borrow titles with a valid WVU login and start reading or listening on a computer and mobile device. Many titles can be enjoyed immediately on any device with an internet browser or download materials with the free OverDrive app. All titles will automatically expire at the end of the lending period so there are no late fees.

“We are excited to expand our leisure reading collections with the addition of eBooks and audiobooks. And summer seems a particularly good time to spend a lazy afternoon listening to the latest audiobook or reading a new novel on your mobile device,” said Penny Pugh, head of Research Services for the WVU Libraries.

This new service, powered by OverDrive, is free for all students, faculty and staff. To get started, visit
