Overdrive - recent changes to library website

Forgive me if this has already been mentioned, but if so, I missed it...

A recent update to the Overdrive library websites I visit finally sunk in to my consciousness tonight.

We've been talking about the update to allow Kindle borrowing, and that part of that change would be a switch that allow libraries not to have to rebuy ebooks to have formats available for the Kindle.

Well a change that's been in place for at least a week, but didn't really sink in, shows they've upgraded the sites to say how many ebooks the library "owns" in total, rather than by format.

For example, I was looking at a book that the library only has 1 copy of, but it's being offered in ePub, PDF, and Mobipocket formats. Used to be, if the library had multiple formats available, the total would be listed under each format - 1 ePub, 2 PDF, whatever. Now it's just a total available, regardless of formats.

So they're that much closer to the changes they mentioned when announcing the Kindle availability...
