Simon & Schuster has announced that they are expanding their eBook lending program, and OverDrive can prepare to supply their eBook catalog to all U.S. public libraries.
A requirement to add Simon & Schuster eBook titles for library lending is that each title must have a “Buy-it-Now” option on the page alongside Borrow or Place a Hold. To satisfy this requirement, OverDrive operates LibraryBIN.com, which has been live at dozens of U.S. public library sites.
With Library BIN, your library will earn a content credit equal to 50 percent of the retail markup for titles purchased from the OverDrive-hosted referral page. The content credit will be applied to your OverDrive Marketplace account for future orders. To opt into BIN, please contact your Collection Development Specialist.
The Simon & Schuster catalog includes authors such as Stephen King, Janet Evanovich, Mary Higgins Clarke, David McCullough, Jodi Picoult, and titles like Mr. Mercedes, Hard Choices, The Light Between Oceans, Steve Jobs, Under the Dome, and many more!
The Simon & Schuster eBook catalog is available for purchase under a one-year term. More information on the Simon & Schuster catalog will be available next week.
