Netlibrary competes with OverDrive in enabling libraries to lend ebooks and audiobooks, but I can't find a search tool to compare their ebook selection with that of OverDrive (http://search.overdrive.com/). Some libraries seem to have partnered with both.
Based on web discussions (here and here) it appears OD offers more popular material. Has anyone here checked out NetLibrary ebooks?

I had been using NetLibrary to read one author not previously in my library's OD selection but recently they have been added to OD and hopefully I'll not longer need NetLibrary. I do not know if the reason for the differences in selection are due to my library's purchasing habits or just a difference in what is available at NetLibrary. I have recently moved to another region with a different library system and they only have NetLibrary. Their selection is also not very good (nearly the same as my previous library's). I will continue to use my previous library's subscription to OD as long as possible.

This definately one area where Sony, B&N, and everybody else has a huge advantage over Amazon's Kindles.
