25-OCT-2021 - Update regarding changes to the OverDrive Checkouts API

Tags: Checkouts API, Fulfillment, downloadRedirect, downloadlink, download api, download

As a follow-up to our previous message, our Checkouts API changes will be deployed to our production environment on November 10, 2021 and you’ll have until January 12, 2022 to switch to the new loan fulfillment experience. We recommend switching as soon as you’re ready.

These changes simplify the loan fulfillment experience, so your API implementation won’t have to account for the various formats and apps we offer.

As a reminder, these changes are available for testing in our Partner Integration Environment using our Integration Library. See the updated documentation for the Checkouts API here.

For more information about what changes we’re making and why, see our previous blog post.

Please reach out to our support team through the Developer Portal with any questions or concerns.

As always, thanks for being an OverDrive API partner,

The OverDrive API team
