That Philly link is very tempting. I already have cards for our local system and the Chicago System but I see several books there that aren't available to either.
I have to think our library can tell how much the patrons are enjoying the downloadable ebooks. When I first started getting books off of Overdrive there were hardy any waitlists. Now they build like crazy as soon as the books are added.
I realize that the Overdrive book licenses are expensive but I'm unclear as to how exactly it works. I mean, once a library purchases a title do they own that license forever or just a set period?
I mean, sure a book might cost $27.99 but it also isn't going to wear out after 12 patrons read the book.
