Overdrive eBooks and Audiobooks FAQ

Classic, best selling & career business ebooks and audiobooks, all downloadable to your mobile devices via Overdrive through Goizueta Business Library.

    Download the free Overdrive app to your mobile device and add Emory as your library.  

    The .ODM file is not the audiobook; it is a file that should prompt a download of the audiobook file. Once you have downloaded the OverDrive app to your mobile device, right click on the .ODM file and select "Open with OverDrive Media Console." This should prompt OverDrive to open, and your audiobook to download.

Or, you can turn on automatic borrowing and your book will be checked out to you as soon as it is available.
