An Update From OverDrive on ARPA Funding

OverDrive reports the following on its blog:

Recently, we shared information about how libraries can use American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) funds to purchase digital books. … ARPA funds enable U.S. libraries to provide pandemic response and relief to their communities with materials and services from June 1, 2021 through September 30, 2022 (16 months). …

To help your library utilize ARPA funding for digital content, we have also created new tools and workflows in OverDrive Marketplace that enable you to order, track, and report on digital content purchased with these funds.

The post goes on to summarize the relevant lending models—including one copy/one user, cost per circ, and simultaneous use—and provide recommended next steps for libraries.

For more information, read the blog post.
