Overdrive is the largest company that facilitates the digital lending of ebooks for the vast majority of libraries and schools. The company is launching a new pilot program that will allow schools to try the system for free and see if it will be a good fit for the staff and student body alike.
With this free trial, schools can lend almost 1,000 popular and educational ebook titles to students for use anytime, anywhere, on any major e-reading device or tablet. Students simply browse or search for an ebook, borrow it from the school library with their trial period library card, and read on devices they already own or have been provided by the school. This system will play nicely with ILS platforms.
