During 2015 I attended a SLAV workshop on eBooks and eResources, where David Feighan (Mentone Girls’ Grammar) spoke about purchasing eBooks from OverDrive and integrating them into the school library collection. I was very keen to have a look at increasing our eBook collection, but was unimpressed by the lack of Australian content in the Follett TitleWave online shop.
It transpired that David’s presentation was very timely, as Follett announced that they had integrated OverDrive into Destiny Library Manager earlier this year. And I was onto this opportunity like a shot! As is the way with many a fantastic moment in library land, the wheels of commerce move slowly. I was ready to go, but there were obstacles to overcome at every stage.
