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 http://bit.ly/kLVfqx
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. http://www.overdrive.com/Solutions/Schools/K12/ABC/
