We would be interested as well. We have Overdrive but would like to expand
collection. Thank you.

Mercy HSB would be interested too. We use Overdrive at present, and any
reduction in prices would be appreciated. I would love to know how to
incorporate it into Follett Destiny - particularly as I am looking at
integrating the two right now.

Kevin Coon, the OverDrive rep for all BAISL schools, contacted me today
about setting up a consortium/shared collection
for all interested schools in our group. I am in favor of providing
resources via a consortium as it allows our students to have access to a
more engaging and diverse collection of resources than I can build with my
own budget (our collection with OverDrive has been growing for 3 years, but
is still not very big). With 100 percent of the investment going towards
buying content and no setup fees, I am strongly in favor of joining forces
with those of you that would be interested as we might be able to launch a
collection with over $10K in content or more.
Kevin mentioned that he has already built a collection that includes over
a dozen schools with the ISLE group and I was able to get him to provide
the participation tiers which are based on school size. These figures
represent never-before-seen prices for using OverDrive (a 75 percent
reduction for my school, in fact), so I hope those of you that have not yet
started offering digital content (and even those who have) take a close
look at this opportunity.
<500 = $250
501- 749 = $500
750 - 999 = $750
1000-1499 = $1000
1500+ = $1500
I will try and field as many questions as I can for the group and if it’s
helpful, Kevin has said he is willing to set up a webinar/conference call
so that he can review the details with us. He is going to send me an
official participation form over the next few days so that I can share it
with all of you.
For those that don’t know Kevin, he is based in CA and can be reached at
949-791-7793 <(949)%20791-7793> or kcoon@xxxxxxxxxxxxx.
