You can borrow 20 RBdigital eAudiobooks and eBooks at a time on your computer! Here are the steps to follow to get connected:
1. Download and install the RBdigital software to your computer
Note: For the Windows version of the program, the download will start when you click on the image below.
2. Login to or Register with RBdigital through the library website
Connect to RBdigital for Audiobooks through the library website. When you are taken to the site, click "Create New Account" to register.
Important: If you used Zinio with Winnipeg Public Library in the past, your username and password have been transferred to RBdigital, so you do not need to register for a new account. Use your old Zinio username and password to log in.
If you experience any problems logging in using your Zinio username and password, please connect with us through the Ask Us! form. (This problem likely has to do with your password and we can help you with resetting your password.)
If you are registering for the first time...
Creating an account is easy. Enter all of the details requested in the form and then click REGISTER. (You will sign in using the username and password that you created.)
4. Search or browse for a book
Search for a book by clicking on the magnifying glass and entering your search words.
Click on ADVANCED SEARCH to do a more detailed search.
Browse for a book by clicking on EXPLORE. You can further filter your results by GENRE and then filter those results even more by clicking on FILTER.
5. Borrow and download a book
When you find a book to borrow, click on CHECKOUT. By default, the book will be checked out for 21 days. If you'd like to change that to 1-20 days, click on the dropdown menu to the right of checkout.
After you click on CHECKOUT, the icon will change to DOWNLOAD. Click on DOWNLOAD.
6. Open up and Log in to the RBdigital software program that you installed on your computer.
Exit the browser and open the RBdigital software program that you installed on your computer. If you're using a PC, the program will show up as an icon on your desktop. If you're using a Mac, it will either show up as an icon on your desktop or in your Applications folder (that can be found by clicking on Finder).
The first time that you open this program you will be asked to fill out a form. Select Canada, enter your RBdigital username and password, and select Winnipeg Public Library.
Note: You will only need to do this once if you click on the boxes at the bottom (Remember Password and Automatic Login). Otherwise, you will be asked to enter your password if you close out of and reopen the program.
After you have logged in you will be taken to the main screen of the program. The program will sync your account with the activity that you did while searching online. Within a few moments, you will see your borrowed book appear!
