Overdrive is the leading company that facilitates the process of borrowing digital content from your local library. Last year, the company signed an agreement with Softlink to bring ebooks and audiobooks to libraries and schools all over Australia. Today Softlink signed a new distribution agreement with Overdrive that allows corporate and academic libraries to enjoy full access to an expansive ecosystem.
This new licensing agreement will allow corporate institutions and private academic libraries to choose from over 300,000 videos, audiobooks, and ebooks. This will allow their members and employees to borrow a wide array of content.
“Softlink has recognized the shift towards digital content and our current focus is to create more opportunities for libraries to offer users 24/7 information access on any device,” said Mr Hillary Noye, Softlink’s Director of Business Development Asia Pacific. “With our Liberty Information Management Solution and the OverDrive service, Softlink can provide an inclusive resource solution for libraries to digitize their collections and connect with today’s mobile users.”
