In July we announced that more than 50 digital library collections from around the world were on pace to reach more than one million digital checkouts on their OverDrive-powered website. We’re under three months until we say goodbye to 2016 and those 50 are still on track to hit that mark.
These statistics echo the overall growth of digital library usage as libraries, schools and corporations around the world are seeing record circulation numbers with their OverDrive services. In 2015, we saw, a then record, 33 different library systems hit the one million number and numbers for 2016 are on track to far out pace those previous stats. You can easily track your digital library statistics in OverDrive Marketplace to see how you’re doing. If you’re unfamiliar with the process we have training modules in our Resource Center that can walk you through Marketplace.
While at the Resource Center check out our Marketing & Outreach section for tips, tricks and programming ideas to help you hit your goals. The holiday rush is right around the corner and, with all the materials available to bring in new users from your community and big sales going on in OverDrive Marketplace to get the titles they want in their hands, there’s still time to hit your digital library circulation goals!
