OverDrive Announces Digital Library Reserve

OverDrive, Inc. has announced Digital Library Reserve, an application service for libraries to develop and manage a circulating collection of e-books, e-magazines, e-newspapers, journals, audiobooks, and other downloadable media for lending to patrons. Libraries using Digital Library Reserve services will be able to integrate digital media into their existing collection from a variety of sources as well as license titles from OverDrive's Content Reserve. This is a collection of digital books and periodicals from leading publishers that includes more than 35,000 e-book products from 400 publishers.

Digital Library Reserve consists of a series of Web services for the library to establish and manage its digital media collection. OverDrive has been working with Adobe Systems, one of its partners, to take advantage of the library support and lending models available for e-books and electronic magazines formatted in Adobe Acrobat (PDF) and secured using Adobe Content Server. Digital Library Reserve will also take advantage of the digital rights management services available to other media formats. This will enable libraries to expand their digital media collections to include audiobooks and PDA titles.
