At the Public Library Association conference in Denver this week, Team OverDrive will be presenting on the latest trends and innovations in digital library lending. Among the many exciting updates coming to your OverDrive-powered website that we’ll be demonstrating is Advantage 3.0, our most powerful tool for consortia libraries yet.


As the new OverDrive is rolled out to our library partners who are members of consortia and use our Advantage platform, they will discover powerful customization options to connect with their users. Each member library will have their own unique, static URL to more easily promote their service. This URL will enable users to be directly linked with their library’s collection. Advantage members can also customize their collection site with their logo and colors.

Another new feature for Advantage members is the ability to curate collections to feature on your website. Libraries have seen huge circulation boost through frequently updating curated collections and now Advantage members can do the same. Additionally, Advantage libraries will also be able to transfer titles from their collection into the consortium collection for easy weeding once popularity of certain titles slows down.

If you’re attending PLA, visit Team OverDrive in booth #603 to see presentations every hour on the new OverDrive and to receive the latest updates and you can learn more about Advantage 3.0 by contacting your Account Specialist.
