Download Library: Next Generation OverDrive - Coming March 2013
The Maine InfoNet Download Library is scheduled to be migrated to OverDrive’s Next Generation digital library website (see a three minute video) on March 21. This will implement “One-Step Checkout,” OverDrive Read (browser-based eBooks), and many search and navigation improvements. This will not require any resources from your library as it uses the same URL and authentication method. Your new website will also carry forward your library’s logo, colors, subject collections, lending policies, and additional features.
Next Generation overview
The new website uses “responsive design” which allows the mobile and desktop experience to be the same—optimized for any size screen regardless of a user’s device.
OverDrive’s Next Generation digital library website also launches OverDrive Read, browser-based eBook reading. OverDrive Read is available for the majority of EPUB eBooks in your collection with no need to purchase an additional format. Next Generation still supports (and provides easier borrowing for) all currently compatible eBook and audio/video devices including Kindle in the US, Android, iPad and Nook. To see a live Next Generation library in action, visit CLEVNET (OH) (http://emedia.clevnet.org).
Beginning this week, there is a ‘Coming Soon’ promotional graphic in the left bar of the http://download.maineinfonet.org website to provide advanced notice of the switch-over to users. We’ve also created resources for you to promote that the Next Generation is coming soon:
