We joined a consortia offering Overdrives audiobooks in September. Each
library contributes an amount to the collection pie - more bang for the
bucks. Our patrons have been very happy with the audio, and I'm sure
would jump at the video offerings.

I was impressed with the demo that I saw of Overdrive's
downloadable audiobooks, but have not yet talked the powers-that-be into
the purchase. (I think it would be a good purchase for our statewiide
consortium that includes public and academic libraries.)

Pricing model has subscribing libraries pay a startup fee for
about 1500 audiobooks and then an annual maintenance cost that includes
X new titles/year.=20
