Congratulations to the following partners that went live with an OverDrive digital collection in April. This month, we welcome a diverse group of libraries, schools, and colleges from around the world. Click on any link to be directed to each library or school’s ‘Virtual Branch’ website.
Ankara University (Turkey)
Ankara University was the first higher education institution founded in the Turkish Republic. The educational material available to students in their Digital Library includes titles about environmental law, prison nursing, architecture, and Greek mythology.
Liverpool City Library (Australia)
The Liverpool City Library my elibrary encourages visitors to “think, meet, dream, learn, play, imagine and escape”. This new extension of their physical locations offers users 24/7 access to a wide variety of audiobooks, eBooks, music, and video titles.
Mayville State University (North Dakota)
It makes sense for Mayville State University to offer their students a digital library since they were one of the first universities in the US to issue each full-time student a tablet PC, alongside fellow new OverDrive partner Dakota State University. Paper has essentially been eliminated in these classrooms, with assignments and in-class presentations all handled electronically.
York County Library System (Pennsylvania)
The staff at York County Library System are helping patrons understand how to enjoy their collection of over 4,000 eBooks and audiobooks by hosting free classes and drop-in sessions throughout May and June. Other libraries interested in hosting Patron Training Workshops may benefit from the Patron Training Template available at the OverDrive Training Center.
