OverDrive Education Updates Sora App With Magazine Content

OverDrive Education made magazines available via its Sora student reading app for ebooks and audiobooks. Schools can buy bundles of 50 always-available magazines (focusing on both education and enjoyment) for their students, including National Geographic KidsTIME for Kids, and The Week Junior. The bundles come in Juvenile, Young Adult, and Adult options, and titles can be removed as needed. New issues will automatically appear in the app as they become available.

OverDrive notes that “the bundle saves time for librarians because there is no need to select individual titles or manage expirations or physical copies. The all-in, bundled price (based on enrollment) helps make purchasing magazines more cost-effective than purchasing on a per-title basis. The Simultaneous-Use rights of the collection allow all students in a school to access the titles at the same time.”
