OverDrive customers can add Project Gutenberg Titles to their virtual collections
Posted by: Sue Polanka
Great news for libraries using OverDrive. They now offer (in beta) the ability to download public domain, EPub titles from Project Gutenberg to a library's virtual branch. These titles don't require authentication and have no hold lists or check out periods. Boston Public Library was the first to implement the Project Gutenberg titles, adding 15,000 of them last Friday. Users can download the free ebooks to any EPUB compatible reader and an assortment of options are available in the beta site.
Libraries interested in adding a Project Gutenberg collection to the virtual branch should contact OverDrive at firstname.lastname@example.org.
