Last year OverDrive provided library partners the opportunity to highlight children and young adult content by offering an eReading Room for kids and teens. The purpose was to provide a solution that would feature popular Juvenile/YA content for kids in a safe, digital environment, while allowing parents to have peace of mind.Capture

Now we’re offering you the chance to highlight your OverDrive streaming video content in much the same way; by creating an Screening Room designed to feature all of the video content you’ve purchased in Marketplace! This feature will provide your patrons a convenient location to browse your streaming videos where they can borrow from custom collections and start watching a title instantly on any device with a browser.

The Greater Phoenix Digital Library consortium was the first to add this new feature and they couldn’t be more excited:

“The Greater Phoenix Digital Library consortium is excited to launch with the first OverDrive Screening Room for our streaming videos. The Screening Room allows us to better highlight and promote our streaming videos—and we hope to attract new users, interested in streaming video from the library, to our OverDrive digital collection. Now patrons can access all of their digital media in one place!

Jeriann Thacker, Electronic Resources Librarian, at Phoenix Public Library.
