RBdigital content is moving to Libby

15 Feb 2021

From February 25 Library members will be able to download the Libby app from the app or Play Store and website. Register by selecting Newcastle Libraries and entering a library membership number and PIN.

Just follow the prompts to search, checkout and download titles. The same 21 day loan period and renewals will apply. Members with RBdigital eBook and eAudio loans will still be able to access the RBdigital app and the title until the expiry date. Holds will not move across to Libby, they can be placed again in the Libby app. eMagazine check outs and downloads created in RBdigital won’t transfer across to Libby but members can check out the issues out again in Libby - older content may not be available. eMagazines in Libby will be subject to the same loan conditions as eBooks and eAudio rather than available as perpetual downloads. You will be able to register with Libby from February 25.
