For Librarians

Updates and news

This year NC LIVE will host a Distinguished Speakers' Series of virtual talks from leaders in industries related to libraries. Similar to a TED talk or conference keynote, each Distinguished Speaker will inspire new ideas and ways of thinking among our member libraries. In addition to the talk, there will be programming before and after the event to extend engagement with the speaker and topic.

Join us for the first talk of the series!

Creating Cultures of Dignity
Charlie Kuhn, Cultures of Dignity
November 18th, 2:00-3:15

Some libraries have reported to us that users are seeing a message on RBdigital about an October 15th date migration to Libby. "On October 15, 2020, audiobooks and ebooks are moving to the Libby app. Learn More." Please ignore this message. NC LIVE's migration is scheduled for December 2nd. We have contacted RBdigital about this erroneous message, and they said that they will remove it.

NC LIVE will be moving all of our RBdigital ebooks and audiobooks to Hoopla on December 2nd. Users will maintain access to NC LIVE content on RBdigital until December 2nd.

This summer, RBdigital was acquired by Overdrive.  As part of this acquisition, the RBdigital platform that NC LIVE relies on for our statewide RBdigital collection will be retired.  The NC LIVE Resource Advisory Committee explored options for replacing this platform, and the NC LIVE Librarians’ Council made the decision to move NC LIVE’s RBdigital content to the hoopla 2.0 platform.

MCNC will be performing infrastructure upgrades on Sunday, October 11th between 12AM and 6AM. This may result in downtime for NC LIVE's website and/or proxies.
