News on mp3 files

Some of you may have seen the announcement that the District of Columbia Public Library is the first in the country to circulate mp3 files using OverDrive (check out their mp3 collection). Read about it, briefly, at the Library Journal site: DCPL First to Offer mp3 Audio Downloads.

We're told that our ability to purchase, and therefore make available to patrons, mp3 files is "coming soon." Rest assured that as soon as we are able to purchase titles in this format, the GMLC will be! From the looks of the courses offered in OverDrive's Open Training Month in September, my guess is that we might have access around then.

Speaking of the Open Training Month, have you signed up? I have! Let's aim for winning that Consortia prize!
