The Ohio eBook Project is a large consortium of Ohio libraries that provides downloadable eBooks, audiobooks, music and video to library patrons. Launched in 2005, this statewide project helps libraries provide these services at a considerable savings. The State Library of Ohio acts as Project Manager and contracts with OverDrive, Inc. to make this project a reality. As of January 2012, more than 100,000 library patrons have enjoyed the Ohio eBook Project holdings. The holdings include over thirty-one thousand copies of more than nineteen thousand individual titles.To view the collection visit: OhioeBooks.com
eBooks in the collection are downloadable in a variety of formats and service a number of different devices. Many of the eBook formats require Adobe Digital Editions, a free software. Downloadable audiobooks and music and video can be downloaded using the free Overdrive Media Console available on the Ohio eBook Project website.
Enrollment is open to Ohio Public Libraries that do not currently offer a standalone OverDrive service. If you represent a library that is interested in joining the Ohio eBook Project, please see the enrollment requirements. If you have other questions or concerns about the Ohio eBook Project, please contact the State Library of Ohio at email@example.com.
