Some key OverDrive advantages:
Why join? Joining the Rhode Island shared collection will give member schools or districts access to more digital titles than any one individual institution could purchase on their own, maximizing the benefits. For example, if School A were to initiate a digital collection of their own, they may only be able to afford 50 titles. However, by joining a collection shared by 20 schools or districts, School A would have access to 1,000 titles. This shared collection grows as more schools or districts join.
Additional benefits include:
What is RILINK contributing? RILINK will add funding to purchase additional titles for the Rhode Island OverDrive Shared Collection that will only be available to RILINK member libraries. A RILINK member school joining the Rhode Island Shared Collection would have access to any of the titles purchased for the Shared Collection. It could also purchase or rent additional titles for its own collection, which would not be available to members of the group. A school library that is not a RILINK member, but joining the Rhode Island OverDrive Shared Access Collection would have access to the titles in the Shared Collection, except for those purchased by RILINK. It could also purchase or rent additional titles for its own collection, which would not be available to members of the Shared Collection. Please see the diagram below.
RILINK is considering affiliate membership for school libraries that wish to share resources, including the Rhode Island OverDrive Shared Collection plus access to LibGuides, ExploringNature and CultureGrams, but are not participating in the RILINK/RICAT shared Destiny Library Manager system. If you are interested affiliate RILINK membership, please let us know.
