MOBIUS Shared Overdrive Collection is Now Live!

This past Fall, eight MOBIUS member libraries signed on to participate in a shared MOBIUS Overdrive Collection: 

  • Cottey College
  • Fontbonne University
  • Lindenwood University
  • Missouri Southern State University
  • Missouri University of Science and Technology
  • Missouri Valley College
  • Stephens College
  • University of Central Missouri

The shared collection provides an opportunity for members to pull financial resources and work together to develop a collection that will grow over time from the extensive selection of eBooks and audiobooks available in the Overdrive Marketplace. The libraries have been working closely with one another, Overdrive, and MOBIUS over the last several weeks on collection development, creating the MOBIUS Overdrive portal, and staff training. Three of the members already had existing Overdrive Collections and graciously agreed to make their titles available to the rest of the group's patrons, allowing the collection to start with access to nearly six thousand eBooks and audiobooks. 

Overdrive will be holding a webinar in February for those who are interested in learning more about joining the MOBIUS group. The site officially went live on December 27, 2017 and is viewable at
