OverDrive’s WIN Catalog is now open for enrollment for all of our library partners in the United States. This comprehensive suite of features integrates patron-driven acquisition into the digital library platform and provides librarians with powerful collection development tools.
As part of the WIN Catalog, users can browse publishers’ entire backlist catalogs and “Recommend to Library” those titles they would like to see in your local collection. This patron-driven acquisition tool allows your library to measure reader interest and either manually or automatically purchase the most requested titles. The Recommend to Library Manager allows library staff to control the number and frequency of requests per patron.
After successful pilot programs at Cuyahoga County Public Library (Ohio), New York Public Library (N.Y.) and Las Vegas-Clark County Library District (Nev), we’re excited to offer the WIN Catalog to all of our U.S. library partners, with availability in Canada, the United Kingdom, Australia and New Zealand coming soon. While the initial phase of enrollment is for public libraries and schools only, the WIN Catalog will be available to colleges and corporate libraries in the near future.
