OverDrive Partners With Nettwerk Music Group

Jun 22, 2007

OverDrive, a digital media provider for libraries, and Nettwerk Music Group have announced a partnership so that music lovers will soon be able to download and fill their MP3 players with tunes--using their library cards. Depending upon the territory within which the OverDrive partner library lies, titles from artists including Barenaked Ladies, Sarah McLachlan and Delerium will be available to lend from their websites. More than 5,000 libraries in OverDrive’s network provide download audio books, eBooks, music, and video that library patrons can browse on the internet, check out, and download to portable devices. Titles are automatically returned when the lending period is over, eliminating overdue fines. The agreement will initially add about 130 Nettwerk albums to the more than 100,000 audio book, eBook, music, and video titles OverDrive offers, including over 5,000 music titles.
