The OverDrive API Developer Portal opened in July, and more than 100 vendors and library partners have already applied for access to APIs including Library Account, Retail Account, Search, Metadata and Library Title Availability. Ultimately, the APIs will enable partners and approved vendors to deeply integrate OverDrive content into a broad range of apps and platforms.


To date, we’ve approved roughly 60 developers with access to this first batch of APIs (more are on the way), and we’re eager to see the results of the projects in progress. We’ll keep you updated as developers go live with OverDrive API-powered integrations.


In the meantime, feel free to poke around the Developer Portal for more details about OverDrive APIs. If you have specific questions about API integration, please contact us here.

    Do you have a list of ILS vendors currently working with the OverDrive APIs? I saw the Jan. 28 blog post about TLC and SirsiDynix, just looking for a complete list (that’s maintained for currency).

      Hi Alison- We don’t have a list, but if you have a specific vendor in mind, I can investigate… -Mike
