Before the end of the first quarter, Macmillan will offer a selection of popular eBooks for lending at OverDrive-powered public libraries in the United States. Under this pilot program, libraries will have access to more than 1,200 titles from Macmillan’s Minotaur Books imprint, featuring award-winning authors such as Olen Steinhauser and Julia Spencer-Fleming. (Read the press release.)
“Showcasing this rich collection of Macmillan titles in the digital library will generate fresh exposure for these books and authors, connecting them with millions of readers looking for what to read next,” says Erica Lazzaro, director of publisher relations at OverDrive.
The Macmillan pilot will follow a one-copy/one-user lending model, and libraries will be able to circulate each copy for 24 months or 52 lends, whichever comes first. Titles will cost $25/each. Stay tuned for availability details.
