OverDrive Academic Unveils New Content Collections

OverDrive Academic introduced “new open access and flexible digital content collections for academic libraries that provide unlimited simultaneous use with more cost certainty. The new Open Access collection for Taylor & Francis provides libraries and schools with a collection of premium academic content at no cost, increasing access to knowledge and promoting collaboration for students and institutions.” OverDrive plans to provide OA ebooks from other publishers in the coming months.

Additionally, OverDrive rolled out a cost-per-circ (CPC) collection for Wiley of 400-plus titles, an “access model [that] makes it possible for an academic library to cost-effectively offer a collection with no upfront cost, paying a small fee for each checkout. This allows the library to offer a large collection at a fraction of the cost of one that is typically purchased. These Wiley titles focus on personal and professional development, including the best-selling Dummies series, personal finance, test prep, economics and more.” This collection is available until April 30, 2023.

For more information, read the press release.
