What is an OverDrive Group?

Some Key OverDrive advantages:

Note:  Remember to make a Resource List for each vendor to store any subscription titles you upload so that you can delete them later if you don't continue a subscription.

  • Monthly and quarterly digital content title discounts including new Novel Set options from Harper Collins & Penguin Random House starting as low as $1.10 per title/student and traditional discounts from other publishers.

Who decides what's in the collection?

  • The school-library collection experts at OverDrive will maintain the collection. But…
  • We can add requested, book award, and other titles to meet member needs according to RILINK’s Selection Policy
  • The RISOCKS Committee works with RILINK staff and OverDrive to make recommendations for developing RISOCKS.

RISOCKS Committee

RISOCKS Committee members represent all education levels in public and independent schools. In conjunction with the RILINK Selection Policy, committee members will monitor title and format selections including suggestions and requests addressing any issues as they arise. Participating RILINK members can make suggestions and requests.

The Committee will have a rotating chair who will communicate with Ann McWilliams-Piraino, our Content Specialist at OverDrive.
