ALERT: Please remove RBDigital app links on your "splash" pages

ACTION: Remove links to RBDigital on your library’s “splash” page

As you may be aware, RBDigital was recently bought out by Overdrive, and their existing links no longer work.  As we were removing the RBDigital links from the app, someone suggested we need to remind libraries to log into their splash pages at https://www.prairiecat.info and remove them there, as well.

To make this change you will log into the splash page interface with your L2 credentials.
