Get Your Gutenberg in Your OverDrive

August 10th, 2010 · by spolanka · No Comments

Last Friday, the Boston Public Library added 15,000 Project Gutenberg books to it’s virtual library, supported by OverDrive.  This new project between OverDrive and Project Gutenberg is currently in beta and allows libraries to provide access to these public domain titles at no charge.  The titles are DRM free EPub books and users will not run into holds, checkouts, or authentication.

The full press release from OverDrive is available and current OverDrive customers who are interested in adding the Gutenberg titles to their own virtual library should contact OverDrive’s partner services group at partnerservices@overdrive.com.
