OverDrive and SirsiDynix Get Library Cards Into More Hands

OverDrive integrated its Instant Digital Card (IDC) service into SirsiDynix. IDC creates a digital library card in less than 30 seconds to give people access to ebooks and audiobooks through OverDrive’s websites and Libby app. Anyone who doesn’t have a library card can become a library patron without going to the library building.

According to OverDrive’s blog post, “Now, IDC is integrating with SirsiDynix to enable libraries who sign up for the service to provide new users with a full-access library card. This grants access not just to your OverDrive digital library, but to every service you offer straight away.” Users who register successfully are prequalified to have their patron record added to the library’s ILS, and the library fills in any other relevant information.

For more information, read the blog post.
