Overdrive and MOLib2go

It started with Kyle presenting an overview of Overdrive. One question was about the customization options for a library’s OD site. Kyle said it’s pretty customizable. Another question was about using the OD software on public computers. There was discussion of how various libraries manage that. Kara followed with a discussion of the MOLib2go service. The first question was about the benefits of joining the consortium -getting access to all the books purchased by all the 22 libraries in the consortium. She followed up with stats about MOLib2go’s books. She also mentioned the #hcod issue – MOLib 2 go is boycotting Harper Collins books for now. That started some discussion, to put it mildly.
She mentioned the links to Project Gutenburg from our homepage.we then had much more discussion of #hcod. Strong opinions abound.
Mike talked about training and demo’d My Help and talked about flyers and other resources that he’ll make use of Webjunction to post those for staff.
