Penguin eBooks Are Once Again Available via OverDrive

Marianela Camacho Alfaro's insight:

Penguin ended their 2-year-old OverDrive boycott today.

There’s a new post on the OverDrive blog this morning which reports the news that “more than 17,000 Penguin ebooks are now live and available for purchase” to OverDrive partner libraries. Readers will now be able to find their favorite Penguin titles in their local libraries.

Libraries will be able to order ebooks via OverDrive under the same contract terms as offered via Axis360 and 3M Cloud Library, both of which have been carrying Penguin ebooks since late 2012. The ebooks are licensed under a one-year expiring contract and priced at retail. Also, Penguin ebooks cannot be sent to a reader’s Kindle over Whispernet (unlike other titles carried by OverDrive); Penguin won’t allow it.
