Changes to the Overdrive eBooks integration

Within Prism we have an integration with Overdrive eBooks (including eAudio) that allows users to borrow or reserve these items and see their downloads account directly within Prism.

Overdrive have introduced a change to their software that enables the end user to choose the format of the item they wish to read from the Overdrive interface after they have borrowed it, as follows:

1.When a full record is displayed in Prism and the user is authenticated, a ‘Borrow’ button is displayed:

2.Clicking this opens the Overdrive interface where the user can select their preferred format:

As before the loan appears in My Account> eContent and users can access it as many times as they wish during the period of the loan, choosing the format each time they access it.

Reservations are unaffected by the change. Users can also continue to return their loans from the Overdrive library as before.

This requires a Connect for OverDrive licence. Please contact Sales  (lmc-sales@educationsoftwaresolutions.co.uk) if you would like more information about this.
