The replacement for OverDrive digital AUDIOBOOKS is going to be Recorded Books OneClick Digital. The State Library of Kansas is currently testing this new-to-us service and there are several libraries across the nation already using it, so I’ve gathered a few samples below.
Notes (from State Library’s Post):
- OneClick Digital is a stand-alone Web site – it will NOT be integrated into NExpress unless we find a way to do it ourselves.
- To download the titles, you will need to use the One Click Digital Media Manager (so patrons will need to uninstall OverDrive Media Console and install this different (free) Media managing software).
- This is looking to be a lot like OverDrive – we will need to test and see if this Media Manager will work on public computers…
- Everyone will have the ability to create their own usernames and passwords. You will not be locked in to using library card numbers and birthdate passwords.
- Media Manager can be set to download books on hold to your computer as they become available.
- Audiobooks can be returned early or renewed (if no one else is on hold).
- For our KLOW Libraries, this means that in mid-November, they will need to remove any Audiobooks, Music and More links and buttons and replace them with something like the one above. Hopefully the State Library will get us a branded logo that says something about Kansas on it…
- Here is a List of Supported Players (including iPods and Creative Zen players)
- I’d link to the Demos, but they’re both down. I emailed Recorded Books…we’ll see if they respond.
- If these instructions are any indication, Mac users are going to be…challenged. Maybe iTunes will make is easy on me.
