OverDrive Concludes Media Station Terminal Pilot, In-Library Kiosk Now Available For All Customers
OverDrive announced today that its “inside the library” eBook, audiobook, music and video sampling and checkout terminal, OverDrive Media Station, is now broadly available.
Launched as a pilot program earlier this year with 50 public library systems in five countries, the in-library eBook kiosks enable readers to browse eBooks, audiobooks and other media on a touchscreen monitor in libraries or any location where libraries want to introduce readers to their eBook catalog.
OverDrive Media Station enables libraries to showcase to the millions of in-library patrons their entire OverDrive digital catalog, including eBooks, audiobooks, music and video. Experienced or new users can browse, search and sample any of the media they find with the swipe of a finger. Patrons can instantly (without cables or pre-installed apps) send a link to any title from OverDrive Media Station to their favorite device for checkout using a QR code, email or text message (SMS).
The OverDrive Media Station is now available for all libraries. Contact your Account Representative for more information.
