Getting Started

Borrowing Periods

  • Borrow titles for 7 or 14 days. Titles you have borrowed appear on your bookshelf in your account on the Indiana Digital Media website.
  • Limit ten titles checked out at a time. You can return any titles you finish early to check out more.
  • Titles are renewable. A renewal option shows up for items on your bookshelf 3 days before your check out expires, if there are no holds waiting for that title.
  • When your hold becomes available, you'll receive a notification. Holds notices are sent via email, and display in your account on the Indiana Digital Media website.  You'll have 3 days to check out your title, suspend the hold until a later time, or cancel the hold.
  • There are no late fees. Titles automatically return—no need to do anything.
  • When browsing for new titles, remember that your cart times out after 30 minutes.

Hold Redelivery

After receiving notification that a hold is available, you can:

  1. Borrow the title within 3 days.
  2. Suspend the hold by selecting “deliver later.” This option passes the book to the next person in line while maintaining the your place on the wait list. After the suspension period (set by you), you will be able to borrow the book when the next copy is available.
  3. Cancel the hold.

If you take no action, your hold will automatically be suspended as a one-time courtesy for 7 days. If no action is taken a second time, the hold will be canceled automatically.
