Over 115,000 digital resources are currently available through the WHO portal!
    5. 5. Community reservethrough OverDrive and the Wisconsin Digital Library • Hundreds of FREE library-contributed titles • Many formats – Text: EPUB and PDF – Audiobooks: WMA (DRM protected) and MP3 – WMA Music – WMV video • NOT a storage solution for digital collection
    6. 6. Community Reserve books showup in the general catalog search 50 copies is a clue that it is from CommRes
    7. 7. At a glance Community Reserve• Long time storage and • No preservation or ownership:preservation no permanent URL to access• Interoperable metadata • No exportable metadata• Historical primary sources • Primarily for access • Broad, current and popular
    8. 8.

    13. 13. Step by step: Digital book by a local author WPLC selection policy • Scope: broad, current and popular • Criteria include – Identified, expressed, or anticipated need in the general community – Attention of critics and reviewers – Prominence, authority, significance, and/or competence of author or creator
    14. 14. OverDrive Marketplace, aka Content Reserve • Only two of the “big 6” publishers sells to libraries • $1,000,000 statewide buying pool for 2012 – Includes $300,000 LSTA – About 5% acq budgets – Still hard to keep up with demand
    15. 15. If the book isn’t available in OverDrive’s Marketplace • Because of technical and licensing limitations personally purchased eBooks can’t be accepted • Authors with at least 10-15 published books can apply to be represented • For authors with fewer books, OverDrive suggests working with an aggregator such as Independent Publishers Group
