The MOBIUS Shared Overdrive Collection will be featured in October's ACRL Choice Webinar: The Power of Partnership. Join us on October 4th at 1pm Central to hear Christina Virden, MOBIUS E-Resources Coordinator, discuss how the collection was developed and how it has grown over the past year. MOBIUS has been an early adopter of this model and is among the most successful of academic shared collections through Overdrive.
"In a world where students are on their computers and mobile devices 24/7, academic librarians know that digital content is the way of the future - but is there a way to provide titles without breaking the bank? With consortium collections, member libraries share resources, giving students and faculty access to the same library of digital content all on one platform. Christina Virden from Missouri's MOBIUS consortium and Jeff Brunner from the Wisconsin Academic Library eBook Consortium will share their personal experiences establishing and growing a digital consortium and OverDrive's Lindsey Levinsohn will provide information on getting started. Whether you're an existing consortium wanting to increase reach or a group of stand-alone libraries looking to join forces, you won't want to miss this free webinar!"
