OverDrive Enables Custom Digital Audiobook and eBook Collections

Jun 26, 2009

OverDrive, a global digital distributor of audiobooks, eBooks, music, and video to libraries, announced a new program for libraries that share catalogs of downloadable media. The OverDrive Advantage plan gives individual libraries that are part of a shared library system the ability to offer their patrons additional popular titles to reduce waiting lists, as well as a custom collection of titles not currently available in the shared collection. This collection will be integrated within the same single download website that patrons already use. OverDrive Advantage libraries will receive their own account in OverDrive’s collection development portal, Content Reserve. The digital collection of titles purchased through this account will be integrated into the existing download website, but only patrons of individual OverDrive Advantage libraries will be able to see these titles.
