Our school does not currently offer digital content, and we would be very
interested in receiving more information about participation and setup!

Thank you for working on this - I would be interested, as well, in more
information as you get it.

thank you so much for doing this work! It sounds like there's a lot of
potential here. Castilleja, like many BAISL schools, is already an
Overdrive customer. I look forward to participating in future conversations
on this topic.

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.
