Overdrive Shared Collection

In December of 2017 the MOBIUS Shared Overdrive Collection launched with 8 participating libraries. The shared collection provides an opportunity for members to pull financial resources and work together to develop a collection that will grow over time from the extensive selection of eBooks and audiobooks available in the Overdrive Marketplace. There are currently 29 participating libraries. View the collection at https://mobius.overdrive.com/

Participation requires an initial commitment of two years with fees being billed annually. One-third of the contract fee goes to hosting with two-thirds allocated as part of a shared content credit that goes toward the purchase of content that is collectively owned and accessed by the participants. This offer is only available for academic libraries.
