UW Adds ArtistWorks to Offerings on Libby and Overdrive

May 29, 2024

University of Wyoming Libraries has added the ArtistWorks platform to OverDrive, the statewide e-content provider, and Libby, a one-tap reading app.

ArtistWorks offers world-class instruction from Grammy Award-winning music professionals. The platform offers over 40 lessons ranging from basic music theory to mandolin through online, self-paced tutorials. These lessons can be accessed by any Wyoming resident with a Wyoming library card.

“It was an easy decision to add these amazing videos to the robust collection of e-books and audiobooks we provide to the UW community,” says Jamie Markus, assistant dean of resource discovery and management. “It became a true winner when we realized we could make them available to anyone with a Wyoming library card.”

In 2021, UW Libraries partnered with Wyoming’s seven community colleges, the Wyoming State Library and county libraries to provide statewide and university-wide access to OverDrive and Libby. The partnership allows all libraries to share content with all Wyoming library patrons and UW community members. This includes digital access to e-books, e-audiobooks, magazines, videos, comics and more. State patrons can access ArtistWorks under “Extras” on OverDrive and Libby platforms. Access to ArtistWorks is valid for 30 days. When it expires, users can get access through OverDrive and Libby again.

Libby is available in the Apple App Store and on Google Play. The app allows users to borrow e-books, audiobooks and magazines to read on mobile devices. Borrowed e-books also are compatible with the Kindle e-reader. For more information about the app, go to www.overdrive.com/apps/libby.
