Bookshelf = Checked Out

BookshelfBA small wording change in Wisconsin's Digital Library today is making me very happy. The word Bookshelf was changed to Checked Out. Why, you ask, does this make my day?

When you're using the OverDrive app, the word Bookshelf was used in two places. First, when a patron logs into their account on Wisconsin's Digital Library, anything they have checked out would appear on this Bookshelf. Next, a patron would BookshelfAwant to read their book and go to their Bookshelf in the OverDrive app to access the books they've downloaded. Confusing, right?

Making sure that library staff and, in turn, library patrons understood the difference and how to get to each of these was something I would clarify when conducting training sessions on Wisconsin's Digital Library and the OverDrive app. When I was at Digipalooza this past summer, it was one of the things that lots of us told OverDrive staff about and they listened!

As of this morning (December 15, 2015), patrons will now see the words Checked Out when they log into their account on Wisconsin's Digital Library - through the OverDrive app or the website. Sometimes, it's the littlest things that make me the happiest. 

Happy Reading! Checkouts
