OverDrive Max Access Model Offers Metered Concurrent Use

OverDrive announced that its OverDrive Max access model for schools and libraries has “a growing list of publishers” participating. The company notes, “Under the OverDrive Max model (also known as metered concurrent use), libraries can stock bundles of up to 100 loans for popular digital books with no expiration date. With each Max title the cost to serve each reader is typically the lowest available cost for libraries and schools for lending the ebook or audiobook.”

“OverDrive Max enables librarians to reserve inventories of select digital books, often at the lowest cost per loan, and eliminate the concerns associated with time limits for access to the collection,” says Karen Estrovich, OverDrive’s senior manager for public libraries. “This saves time and is a cost-effective option to serve the maximum numbers of readers with a library’s budget. It is perfect for summer student programs, books club and community reading events.”
