*eBooks, eAudiobooks and eVideos cannot be downloaded on library computers.
**Downloadable items are compatible with most eBook devices, Smartphones and MP3 players. While the San Diego Public Library strives to provide high quality customer support for our eCollection services (including OverDrive and OneClickdigital), the wide variety of computer operating systems and configurations of personal computers make it impossible for the library to guarantee that all eCollection-related software will run on all electronic devices. Library staff can provide assistance with installing and navigating eCollection software. We cannot, however, provide personalized troubleshooting for operating system/software configurations that may cause eCollection software to malfunction.
