[Koha] Overdrive integration in Koha 18.05

In our library we are using Koha 18.05.03 on Debian GNU/Linux 8.

According to 
Overdrive is integrated within Koha. From Overdrive we have got several 
bits of information but in Koha 18.05 we have only the following 
available system preferences:

* OverDriveCirculation 	
* OverDriveClientKey
* OverDriveClientSecret 	
* OverDriveLibraryID

Filling these in indeed shows the new tab "OverDrive account" in the 
OPAC user account, but then an "Internal Server Error":

Could not compile 
/usr/share/koha/opac/cgi-bin/opac/external/overdrive/auth.pl: Can't 
locate WebService/ILS/OverDrive/Patron.pm in @INC (you may need to 
install the WebService::ILS::OverDrive::Patron module) (@INC contains:

BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at 
/usr/share/koha/opac/cgi-bin/opac/external/overdrive/auth.pl line 27.

Does anyone know the solution to this?

I see in later versions of Koha there are more preferences:

* OverDriveAuthName
* OverDriveUsername
* OverDrivePasswordRequired
* OverDriveWebsiteID

We have the necessary bits of information from Overdrive but we can't 
fill them in in Koha 18.05. Does this mean the Overdrive integration in 
Koha 18.05 is not functional and we will have to update to a newer Koha
