The dramatic growth of OverDrive's catalog is the direct result of synergistic relationships between publishers, libraries and retailers. Developing retail partnerships opens doors for more publishers to access OverDrive's library and school channels; the exposure eBooks gain in libraries and schools generates new retail sales; data gathered across OverDrive's library network helps inform publishers' strategic decisions by providing insights into readers' browsing and borrowing habits. These mutually beneficial partnerships translate to more content available to more readers in more places.
With the number of new OverDrive publisher partners accelerating in 2012, the B2B digital distributor has dramatically increased its ingestion capabilities through team additions and process improvements. As a result, in June, OverDrive added a single-month record of more than 100,000 new titles.
