The Palace Project Adds OverDrive Titles to Its Platform

LYRASIS and The Palace Project announced that content from OverDrive is coming to The Palace Project app for iOS and Android devices. “This addition will bring the largest provider of library ebooks into The Palace Project platform, allowing libraries to deliver the majority of their ebooks and audiobooks from multiple vendors through a single app,” the press release notes. The Palace Project—a division of LYRASIS in strategic partnership with the Digital Public Library of America (DPLA) and supported by an investment from the Knight Foundation—aims to help libraries expand their digital offerings, delivering content via an easy-to-use interface and ensuring that patron privacy and data are protected. In the coming weeks, libraries using The Palace Project will be able to access their OverDrive titles in the Palace app (the titles will also remain in the Libby app).

“OverDrive is a crucial provider of digital content and adding them to The Palace Project is a major win for public libraries,” says Michele Kimpton, global senior director of The Palace Project. “We believe that by bringing OverDrive and Palace together, we’ll be able to get even more content in the hands of library patrons everywhere.”
