OverDrive Advantage is an OverDrive program that allows libraries within a consortium to purchase materials for use only by their patrons.
Purchases made with an Advantage Program account are not attributed to meeting the Ohio eBook Project MOU minimum contribution amount.
Purchases made with an Advantage Program account will not be used to meet the Ohio eBook Project MOU minimum purchase contribution.
A library purchasing Advantage program titles must purchase similar titles for the consortium the same day as the Advantage Program titles following the guidelines below:
- If the title being purchased by an Advantage library is not previously owned by the consortium as a whole, at least one (1) copy for the consortium must be purchased.
- If the title is already owned by the consortium and the consortium hold ratio for that title and format is above five, the library purchasing copies with their Advantage account must purchase the same amount of the same copies of titles for the consortium (a one-to-one ratio).
This policy is effective as of April 11, 2011.
