  • These are all things that Overdrive announced at their annual conference. There isn’t a timeline but they are being worked on. The catalogue integration is something the Bibliocommons will be working on. It’s a major project so no timeline yet.

      • Downloadable audiobooks
      • eBooks

      • Digital content provider since 1980s (CD-ROMs); library vendor since 2002; at OPL since 2006
      • Content licensed from publishers
      • Use of DRM (Digital Rights Management) software manages digital copyrights and terms of use
    • 4. Downloading
      • When you get an audiobook or eBook from the library, you are a downloading a file to your computer or device
      • Every file needs a program to open it
      • For example: .doc for Microsoft Word, Adobe Reader for .pdf, Overdrive Media Console or Adobe Digital Editions for Audiobooks or eBooks
    • 5. Types of Digital media
      • Ebooks vs PDFs
      • ePub: reflowable text, will reformat for your screen size, zoom level
      • PDF: static image of the page but better for image and text together
    • 6. Audiobooks: WMA vs MP3
      • WMA (Windows Media Audio): smaller files sizes, DRM compatible, do not work on a Mac but can be transferred to Apple portable devices with a PC
