    Hi Susan,
    The cost-per circ access model is a transactional model that enables simultaneous use and allows libraries to budget based on checkouts, which is a form of patron-driven acquisition. OverDrive library partners can browse or search for currently available titles in OverDrive Marketplace, and curate their collection to match the unique interests of their communities. As with other content and access models from OverDrive, libraries will set user lending policies for streaming videos to manage costs within their material budgets. For more information about cost-per-circ model or titles available under this model, please contact your OverDrive Account Specialist.
