PLEASE EXCUSE ANY CROSS POSTINGS
As some of you know Overdrive has a program which enables individual libraries to have their own collection of eContent through the ListenUp! Vermont site called Overdrive Advantage. GMLC has not had a formal policy on this option in the past, but now feel it is important that if libraries want to sign up for this option through Overdrive that some consideration should be made to GMLC as we do provide the platform and tech support for ListenUp! Vermont.
After surveying, research and much thoughtful discussion, the GMLC board has decided for the remainder of the 2012 membership year, that is until December 31, that if any library decides to participate in Overdrive Advantage there will be a Consortium Consideration Fee of $250 per library.
We are hoping that the beginnings of experimentation with the program will better inform us on how to proceed next year with fees. Any input or thoughts you might have are most welcome. Please feel free to share your thoughts with any of the board members.
Thank you for being a member of GMLC.
