OverDrive Developers

3/10/15 update

  • The OverDrive Metadata API sometimes reports available formats that are not in the library's OverDrive collection. The most notable case of this is the Kindle format showing up for Canadian libraries. Although the OverDrive APIs will not allow circulation of such formats, the Metadata API is giving the impression the format is available to users. We are currently working to resolve this.
  • A bug fix for the lastupdatetime search feature. Some time inputs were not being correctly translated, resulting in queries against a different time than inputted. The fix will make any ISO 8601 formatted date work correctly and consistently.
