Hello All,

Thought I'd post this since we've been discussing streaming video recently:

(from IMDB)
*Denver Library Allows Movie Downloads*
The Denver Public Library on Tuesday became the first library to allow
patrons to download movies and television programs over the Internet to
their PCs or portable media players, /Home Media Retailing/ magazine
reported. The initial films made available by the library online are
limited to a few classic films, including Federico Fellini
<http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0000019/>'s 8 1/2
<http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0056801/>, Vittorio De Sica
<http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0001120/>'s The Bicycle Thief
<http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0040522/>, and D.W. Griffith
<http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0000428/>'s Birth of a Nation
<http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0004972/>. The software is timed to void
the movies after the lending period is over. The Denver library's
Michelle Jeske said, "Downloadable video gives our patrons 24/7 online
access to exceptional films and allows [us] to have this type of format
without the space, handling, and damage issued normally associated with
DVDs and tapes."

Has anyone on this list had experience with OverDrive and their services?

Best,
