SELCO and its member libraries offer eBook and eAudiobook access to public library members through OverDrive as a Value-Added Service. The service is available to patrons with a SELCO Online Public Library issued library card in good standing and supported by value-added automation fees paid by those libraries.
Materials are listed in the SELCO OverDrive Catalog as well as in the SELCO catalog. Content is generally purchased once a week from commercial publishers. Libraries may also submit local content to the collection through an additional value-added service.
Direct patron support is provided by participating Online Libraries with SELCO staff as backup. How-to guides, tutorials, and listing of compatible devices are provided by OverDrive’s Help Center. Reports on lending activity are located in the OverDrive Marketplace; contact the SELCO Help Desk if log in information is needed.
OverDrive supplies a number training sessions and some promotional material at the OverDrive Learning Center including a series of Help Videos and Handouts.
SELCO maintains a special eReader kit for libraries to let their staff play around with the eReaders. Full information can be found on the Special Collections page.
