Recommend OverDrive Titles for Purchase

by Reference Librarian 2 | April 26, 2018 at 02:04 PM

If the ebook or digital audiobook you are looking for is not available in Minuteman’s OverDrive catalog, you may be able to recommend a title for purchase. Follow these steps on the OverDrive website or in the OverDrive mobile app:

  • After signing into the OverDrive catalog, search for the desired title or author.
  • On the results page, click or tap on “Recommend to library” under the Availability filter. On the website, this option is located along the left side of the page. In the mobile app, tap on Filters to access this option.

  • Titles  not currently part of the Minuteman digital collection but available for purchase have a black “Not Owned” banner above the cover and a “Recommend” link below. Click or tap “Recommend” to recommend the title.


OverDrive will send your recommendation to both your local library and Minuteman for purchase consideration. You will automatically receive a hold on this title if it is purchased.


Please contact the Acton Memorial Library Reference Desk at 978-929-6543 with any questions about this process.
