Dynamic Duo – Overdrive and Oliver

19 Jun

Loreto-Normanhurst College has been lending ebooks via Overdrive for some time.

Softlink has gained a distribution license with Overdrive to facilitate schools lending ebooks. This means that the Overdrive ebooks appear seemlessly in the Oliver catalogue.

In QLD, Assisi College
and Brisbane Boys’ College are now lending Overdrive ebooks and have it operating within their Oliver catalogue. So well done to all these schools and their teacher-librarians, Maureen and Jenni, for being frontrunners in this field!

The costs also appear to have improved – compared to the frightening figures of a few years ago.

Overdrive also provides Audio Classroom. This provides audio books to all students, though the title range is not huge at present, it means there is finally a way for schools to provide all students with audio books.
