Digital Library: RBDigital Update - Summer 2020

RBDigital Service Updates - July 2020

The company which owns RBDigital recently merged with another library media company and as a result will no longer be offering the unlimited subscriptions models for lending digital audio and magazines which have been available to Wyoming libraries through the RBDigital platform.  In addition, the new company intends to discontinue the RBDigital apps and website in the near future. 

In order to continue offering statewide, equitable access, the Wyoming State Library will be migrating all audio content to the cloudLibrary platform as of October 1, 2020. Unfortunately, there will be no platform to host the digital magazines after October 1 on a statewide basis, so the digital magazine service will cease at that time.

Please see details below for how current users of RBDigital will be affected by this transition.

Audiobook Transition

Digital audio is currently available in the cloudLibrary collection and will continue to grow as purchased content is migrated from RBDigital to the cloudLibrary.  After July 15th, new audio content will only be purchased on the cloudLibrary.

  • Find new audio in the cloudLibrary beginning the week of July 13th.
  • All previously purchased audio will be migrated on or before September 16th.
  • RBDigital checkout and hold limits will be reduced beginning in mid-July:
    • Limits will be changed to 3 total audiobooks at a time and only 2 holds at a time. Patrons will only be able to check out one audiobook at a time after September 1.
    • As content is migrated to cloudLibrary, users are encouraged to checkout and place holds on materials on that platform instead.
  • Digital magazines will no longer be available after October 1, 2020.
  • The RBDigital apps and website will no longer be available for Wyoming users after October 1, 2020.

 

Patron Transition

Patron information, including current checkouts, holds, and history cannot be migrated from RBDigital to cloudLibrary.  Patrons can download their history by logging in on the RBDigital website at https://wyomingstatewy.rbdigital.com and then selecting My Account > Profile > Export My Transaction History.  The exported text file will contain all the saved history, etc from the time the account was created.  This will help users recreate holds and keep a history even after the RBDigital platform is no longer available.

Contact your local library if you need assistance with the cloudLibrary or other digital content services that may be offered locally.  If you are not a current cloudLibrary user, all you need is your library card and PIN to sign up and begin using ebooks and audiobooks.
